for want of sanctuary

for want of sanctuary


this wants to be a
waterfall
of hummingbirds
covering
our bodies with numbers
from the pages
of my book

ii.
between your time
and mine
I leave hope
you leave loneliness
as we return to our names


iii.

sometimes I read you
in other shadows

in the twilight
your voice is different

you open your wings
and somehow 
I recognize you

  1. The first stanza is my favorite; beautiful words!
