Ode to joy

The hardness
and the softness
of love

Beauty is
difficult
words are
difficult

so too to
make sense
of our senses

born to tears
though joy
is our natural
element

should I ever
forget you
please remind
me

one kiss
is worth a field
of shimmering stars

my bones ache
for your embrace
be kind
