Your worth comes in waves,

you are a constant and then a firework.




never the same view for too long

and I can’t take my eyes off you.


I don’t have the air

to breathe what I thought I needed to say.

I will say it when you are stumbling

and can’t find my love.

My gaze won’t linger,

it will lock in place

and I will spend five lifetimes in half a moment

as close as I can get to you.


Behind my eyes

you are sometimes taken for granted.

Maybe it’s because

you are the one thing I thought I could never call home.
