I call him babylove
his skin is so soft
it reminds me of weeping
at your tiny feet
I call him babylove
he wakes me in the night
and interrupts my dreaming
I call him babylove
because he keeps growing and changing
right before my eyes
I call you babylove
you take and take
and still I give you more.

Tell me you love me

and this tiny house will overspill

you are not the bad things
that have been done to you
you are a fierce flame
that warms my heart

forget them, my love
they are nothing
and you, and you
are everything

Not being able to distinguish her from my present self.
I wrote this over a year ago. It is still true. Here come my fears to haunt me.

take me to the desert
no one will find me there
sandstorms will obscure our footsteps
the sun will sweat out all our sins

I told you to remember your phone charger
to remember
that I love you.
More than anything
in the world
more than autumnal trees through frosty windows, freshly cut grass, poetry, the smell of books, old and new, potato waffles, scrambled eggs and hot rain.
Because you are sunlight
after an arctic winter
you are the warmth under my skin
you, my love
are more than
