on the outside

I still can only write
If it feels like I'm writing to you
I was always wishing he as you

It was unfair 
An unforseeable cruelty
I'd spare him
But alas... Time 

He tried to cage a bird

Is that why I loved you
you didn't encroach
Self possession always glitters

You're luminescent as ever
of course
I fly close to flames always
