one day

one day he will come along
and he will read each and every word
of each and every poem.

he will want to
and he will ask me if it's okay
and know how voyeuristic 
and how precious 
and what an honor it is.

he will understand each one 
and won't be jealous or offended
or offend me with a question.

instead he'll tell me he knew that 
i would have written them down in blood,
if i could have
and i'll say yes, 
or on my very body,
or imprint them on my soul

and he'll say yes and hold them dear
and in turn hold me
