Ask nothing of him

Let every day with him be a surprise,
a gift to unwrap, just because because.
Reject the concept of time, except for
those moments that spark like the carbon
of a lit match. Roll your tongue over his skin
in a new place every day and push pin it to your memory.
Relish the way he says your name and press it into
your subconscious like the bud of a rose.
Keep it there forever, even if you can’t keep him.
