Letters to a Nurse #7

You come to me

And the air 

Is getting thin 

The waters

Run still

But your waves 

Are crashing over me 

The weight 

Of who I am 

My body and these bones 

All of the clocks 

On these walls

*

We’ve written our names

In the face of the moon

And 

it rains diamonds

On Jupiter 

*

But there still isn’t enough time 

For me to love 

You right

*

When words fade 

From this 

Page 

We will remain 

*

Surely you know,

You don’t have to change ,

Not here,

It rains fire …

And 

I’m on fire …

When I’m with you 

And I am with you

Take my body

All that I am 

*

Breath for breath

See what you’ve done 

From  here to eternity…

I will be reading only you

And even then 

I will be learning 

How to love you.
