My Love Is Ashes

Poem by Daniel Hooks

My love is ashes
and heart shaped gashes
my love is pain and fear
I want to hold you close
I want to keep you here
But like sand, you drain through my hands
This love never happens like I planned

My love is denial
One day I smile
then the sadness returns
but I love you too much to let you learn
of they way I feel
and there is a seal on my mouth
my lips are bound
what comes out is not a sound of
the truth of how I feel
but the truth I fear you will find anyway!
