Every time I tried
to put my name to you,
you vanished
coyly mingling with the air
the blue twilight
dust about your feet.

Every time someone
tries to claim you, you
fly up into
a cloud of smoke, the first light
of dawn
split into psychedelic
patterns
filtered through your
butterfly wings.

Every time I tried
to capture the force that drives you,
makes you run,
my hands came up empty, the clues like grains
of sand,
raindrops and glass teeth
shattering as they fell from my mouth.

You evade every attempt to define
cynical, bashful,
optimist
artist
the glimmer in your gaze
settles on me as pixie dust
but I cannot believe well enough
to fly...

All I want to do is hold you,
all of you,
close to me
because I'm fragmented without you.
The words on your skin
contradict the mind, bypass everything, though I wonder
what I've done to you
who am I to change you?

Hungry and restless,
giver of visions
wherever you go, live within me
and know
that I love you,
and every part of you
is perfect.
This one is very hard to explain. It's about two things. A combination of the person I love, and a part of myself- the part of me that I cannot pinpoint.
