I Need You

dscf2846

i want to say,
the light soothes
every wound,
all the shadows
 
i want to say,
groping in the dark
is the path, the gateway
to our happy future
 
i want to feel,
always, the presence
of sunlight streaming
onto my quivering skin
 
even as i cling,
even as i know i am,
to sneaky corners
immune to light
 
but the words hide.
the dance is not
always near, or
hopeful, or ecstatic.
 
instead i say,
let’s do this together
it might not be pretty,
or redemptive
 
but it is here
and i need you
and maybe you
need me too. – TS
