Firefly

Firefly,

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.
