When I’m broken down
And I cannot mend
When my walls
They’re armed
So much more than armed
That’s when she walks in
Her hair on fire
Her eyes burning bright
We share the same
We try for the light

I’m not warm
I have nothing to offer
I have nothing to give
I am
If anything
Frayed edges
And stars burning out

She takes my hands
And looks me in the eyes
” how are you?”

I’m fine

“Are you?”

No I’m …..

And she warms me
This is what we have
We separate
But we pull each other
Back together
And again
Until the end
