"Ultimately, it is the desire, not the desired, that we love." - Nietzsche.
My love for you
is not for you

My love for you
is for me to enjoy
for me to lay out under the honeyed sun
for me to wrap around my tickled smile

My love for you
is for me to imagine
for me to compose an alluring masterpiece of us
for me to indulge in a tipsy dream of eternity

My love for you
is for me to inspire
for me to face Cerberus in shining armor of amour
for me to conquer Everest riding on my iron lionheart

My love for you
is for me to suffer
for me to butcher my raw bleeding being into pieces
for me to hang my dismembered soul on biting hooks

My love for you
is for me to live
for me to serve my time for the grave crime of love
for me to revive my breath after rising from death

My love for you
is not for you

My love for you
is for me to remember
When my withered heart can no longer recall
the tender arc of your distant eyes
