Dutch Boy

Dutch Boy

I had no need for moonlight
Your skin glowed in the dark
underneath the blanket that we shared
in our bedroom in our apartment
in the life that we shared.

In exchange I gave you heat.

I'd wake up with your long limbs
tangled around me,
all one inch and six feet,
or one eighty-five, as you called it
as if you were a beech tree
in your country in the winter
trying, with your gnarly branches,
to grasp at fallen leaves.

I was your leaves
but like them
we have outgrown each other.

Icon dump Two.

Second icon dump! Well, this isn't much. I just love Love and Death to death, *wink, wink* *cough, cough*. So I capped the first part and made icons and ugly banners of young Boris. Enjoy? Well, I hope you do.
