Lovelessly Loving You

I want your dreams to know the scent of my skin,

To call me by name when I am not around.

I want them to know the bumps on my face,

To recall every pimple by size,

I want your dreams to call my name when you can no longer

Dream, so that I may kick your ass back into dreaming,

That’s how I want to love you

Even when you are dreamless,

I want to be your hope.

Even when you are without imagination,

I want to be light.

Even if it takes loving a lifetime,

Even if it takes loving you fearfully–

Fear that I may lovelessly love you,

Even when I love you uncontrollably.

When my dreams are your dreams, and yours, mine–

I want to love you even when I am afraid.

Even when my heart is in disbelief,

Or when the sun no longer shines,

And our youth no longer our pride,

Even when your cheeks are wrinkled,

And you smile with is without tightness,

And your world filled with tenderness,

I want to love you.

Maybe it will be a lifetime,
