You are Blue Foundation
that song that grips the sublime contusion
and makes it sing.
You are the very shallow thought
I have had since 12
rolled up into the redeemed power of a star
a dance move previously unknown
I rest my heart on the thought of you
despite us having known nothing of one another.
It is in the casual way you answer a question.
With a buried sense of delicate hope to be taken seriously and not
seen for nervous you are, like all of us, like that.
I have no idea if you know it but
you can learn a lot about a person
You are a smile away from staling my every sunshine filled day
and replacing them in terms of valuation.
You are a clinical yes you are going to live
in the face of dreams all week of terrible terminality.
I may have given many poems
to many beautiful people in my life so far,
but each one remains special,
and you are no different,
Before my eyes.
