For You

For You

Purity class
is not needed for
the most sincere, warm woman
some man will get next.
Tears of joy.

Don’t blame him.
He could not resist
keeping you tied down so long.
He had to have your
spirit’s force.

Your light will
sustain me, not him.
Whoever has the time will
find earth’s angel with
soothing hands.

If not for
you, memory would
die, life would flame out, ashes
swept to a deep corner.
Go now, go.
