a little sigh and why


I look at you and know

I cannot fix your heart

It was broken

And not by me

But you have the tools for repair

Not I.

I look at you and know

I cannot fix your mind

Over complexes it is entwin’d

There are chasms and bends

And I don’t dare pretend

To have a map to those parts

I look in your eyes

And I hope your sorrowful soul

Will reconcile itself

To being in a body that cannot contain

Your amazing mind

Your beautiful heart

That refuses to beat

To the rhythm of the world

My darling

And so it will be ever hard for you

And so it will be ever difficult for me

As we learn in this world

How to be.
