Life I Don’t Deserve


droplets stain the screen

and I write your name

in nature’s braille

the cold kiss on my forehead

silences my head

calming the inner storm

not too distant from the outside

the patter on plastic

is the footstep to your door

memories slip through the trees

carried by brisk fall winds

the darkness may frighten

but I am emboldened at what I don’t know

a moon-less night may tempt

but in you, I have already made my fall

for I cannot marry

but I will love

I cannot commit

and my heart will be undone

at the slightest inclination

of withdrawal

or the injury I suffer

when I force your call

throwing myself into nature

as if she will rapture me already

because I don’t deserve

another shot at this life
