my love for you is assiduous.
when I wrap my arms around you, they become human, tying knots to the ends of my fingers holding you to the foundation of my being. my breath begs to comfort and not rob you of placation.
the pressure you think you feel is esoteric and seemingly unjustified inside the console I thought I had built for you.
I bleed in misunderstanding pretending to hold a smile whose strength will mystify. close fast your eyes, whose lids are heavy, and feel the haven of my persevering care.
