Darling, Let Me Burn
I can’t make you promise
a bend or a break,
but I love you
in that aching way.
I love you the way the Sun kisses
how your gentle hands and fingers
travel slowly across the hills of my body.
I want you to kiss me
the way a cigarette touches a lighter,
making my lips beg for more.
Ignite the ugliest parts of me,
show me that there is some light
in all the darkness.
