Thank You Note

Thank you for showing me the part of you that is good.
Thank you for going on this journey with me, the only way you knew how. 
When it was good it was stunning and beautiful.

Thank you for sparing me. 
Thank you for setting me free.

There's a part of me that feels unclean 
from having been so close to you
because of who/what you're close to:
pitch black hole.
So cold.

I'm now speaking to the light in your eyes:
Grab what little hope
The hope you've got 
And run.

Once in front of Chichen-Itza 
you told me that when we climbed to the top 
you'd ask me to wear your ring.
I said okay. We started up.
Once, 
invisible to everyone but you, 
I walked into your living room 
and we cuddled for a while.
Angel.

It's all right.
The light in me and the light in you.
Their song is a secret, unlisted.
Their number was one.
They live together somewhere in-between
sunset and midnight
earth and sky 
on a mountain peak
alone in a crowd
whispers at night
seen and unseen

I see it now.
Like cursive writing on a page.
You were right that time,
it's better this way.

Repeat myself:
There's a part of me that feels unclean 
from having been so close to you
because of who/what you're close to:
pitch black hole.
So cold.
I'm now speaking to the light in your eyes:
Grab what little hope
The hope you've got 
And run.

If you ever get away 
send a flicker 
of static or a signal 
on the line.
