I can’t say
I quite understand
matters of the heart,
distancing of lovers,
extinguishing of love.

I can say,
I hope one day
I’ll be stronger than that,
that the love I know, is
in the shadows of my heart,
will fearlessly show itself
without consideration
for my insecurities
or attachment.

That I’ll be able to say,
Fuck it,
live, love fiercely.
