For my Shay

Here is my heart beating rhythmic lub-dubs,
edges smeared and blurry,
misused, free;
Here is my strength flowing wave-like through veins knotted and curled,
animating this blood and bone likeness
of me;
Here is my soul
ill contained by flesh
reaching for you;
Here is my passion,
screaming laughing weeping wanting aching
Here is my love
imperfect and human,
warm, tender,
kisses on closed eyelids,
whispers in the dark,
steeped in emotion,
I love you.
