From The Sidelines

He was always a part of my deepest and darkest pleasure,
Giving me a fire that would frequently be burning brighter
Than any single constellation or star in the dark sky. He is
Not anyone’s gold mine, but he is my most prized treasure
Hidden deep within the shadows and he was a solid lighter
Who frequently lit me up. He was the one to hold me in his
Strong embrace. He was always pushing for me to be at my
Fullest and my highest potential when I was really feeling
I was at my lowest point. He is my angel and my protector,
Guarding or keeping me safe against the tears I would cry
That came at nighttime. He repaired every cracked ceiling
And held it together for me. He was a bridge and connector
From my past to my present. He is my breath and tomorrow.
He is right in the middle of my chaotic messy storm. I was
Finding myself hanging onto him like an anchor while he
Poured himself into me when I was empty and my sorrow
Threatening to ruin things I knew. My escape from the buzz
Lived in his arms and heart. He asks me what inspires me…
I do not tell him that it is him and it will always be him in
The end because he always stays embedded under my skin.
