Underneath the shade of your masculinity
I tend to be, recklessly sanguine
Attached to nothing, like a cool breeze
Whisking around—instead of sitting, standing or taking-in
You’re a firefly to the visibly unknown
Lighting the way, down a dark road
Complete in your ways—breaking under my own
Although things didn’t begin this way,
They took a difficult turn
Though it’s never in your nature to impose
Please don’t leave
The slightest flicker, and I fall apart
Clinging, as our ways depart
Stay with me
I need you more than sunlight.
