Love Arrives Safely

Love Arrives Safely

Love comes easier to me on the nights that you ink me into immortality.

It reminds me of how love arrives safely, riding on metaphorical

sunsets and shooting stars, so softly and in perfect lyrical motion.

I spent nights rolling in its flames and watching us burn in its

discontent arms. It gently settles into all our simple complexities

and erases the multitudes of mishandled pasts that once made

indelible patterns along the lines of our condemned hearts, and

I watch, always waiting for the swan song, when love shall leave

just as safely as it had arrived, and put our stories to rest, forever,

with nothing but your words left behind to tell the tale.
