Allow Me


My love,

living is useless

being alive is not

but only for a little while


Until the novelty wears off

and you go back to living

go back to useless


Our worth is defined by


as is

everything else


So, if you please,

untie these knots

which bind me to you,

which bind me to this

hauntingly lurid earth


And allow me to fulfill my dreams

of flight, of freedom

allow me

to soar.
