A Difficult Gift

We were one with galaxy’s center,

one divided into two,

carrying part of the other’s fire.

~

You are the wind up key for the clockwork,

a mechanism that I don’t comprehend,

only known to one watchmaker.

~

You are the charcoal,

activating the painful purge,

a poison keeping me comatose.

~

You cut open the snake bite,

sucking out the venom,

then spitting it on the ground.

~

You are the surgeon,

who must cut carefully around the bullet,

before it travels to my heart.

~

You are my soul’s catalyst,

a rare sacrifice to love so deeply,

to hurt just enough to heal.
