You

“Love takes off the masks
that we fear we cannot live without
and know
we cannot live within.”

James Baldwin

Dangerous
And unforgiving
The world is harsh and cruel

Betrayal lies
In closest quarters
Interrupting
Everything

But You

You keep reminding me
How much
I want
To remember
Myself

Surely my own incoherence
Was never enough
To help me find my way
