how do you protect someone without being physically there?

ode to the look in your eyes when i turn away

i wish it were as simple as shielding you with my back from flung shards of glass

or holding you tighter than your mother’s grip on your throat

the table outside the movie theatre is sticky and i can hear your breath catch as you begin to remember that we don’t last forever

we always forget before we remember

i wish it were as simple as forgetting the passing shadows over your eyes as we drive closer and closer to letting you go

words aren’t enough to protect you but if they could i’d rip apart every book in the world and stuff the pages in my mouth i’d bleed out with ink if it stopped the tears in your eyes

can you forgive me for the complication?
