Through your books, your music,
the things that made you smile,
what brought you down,
what broke you down and lifted you back up again—
I learned you like a poem.
Allow me to dive beneath your vast surface,
deep into the desolate crevices of your mind.

How did you learn how to speak
with all that terror caught between your teeth?
How did you manage to unhaunt the memories
that you cannot escape?

Take me somewhere new.
Let me show you that I can witness your shadow
and love that too.
