Sunshine Only Warms During The Summer Months // You Are Forever

I am wrapped around
my nerve endings
a thread on thin material
waif and waving
through cold breezes.
I am closer to you
than to my own skin
so little can set me alive
and I am within my own heart
a little less dark
curling into heat
to lull the flutters
and the end is nearer,
hope is clearer.
In cold air, and warm light
I am soft, all unfocused
and desperate,
and what you offer for warmth
what you offer for love.
