Tell me “you are well loved.”.”
Please tell me someone loves you well, so that I can take my small offering and burn it at the foot of a mountain,
instead of hiking it’s trail to deliver it into your palms.
I want to know you are so loved,
that it would be a poor gift
to give you my affection,
in comparison to what you’ve got.
Let me head away from the shadow of the mount
having burnt it, with an urn in hand,
knowing it's his warmth that walks you
through the foliage
and the wilderness of your heart
a bond so deep that it strengthens you
with a better tenderness than that
which would rest
on the possibility of mine
