there’s a place

Posted: May 16, 2010 in Poetry

there’s a place
in my heart and i know
that it is love
because you live in it

your head’s imprints
lodged in the pillows say
you slept in there
last night and for a while

the television there
is programmed to all of
your favorite shows
and you record old movies

you play music
that alters my heartbeat
you dance and
my blood moves through me

i try to keep
all of my arteries clear
i give you time
and a way to leave

please stay there
i made a place for you
keep it clean
and forever occupy me

    This is beautiful–guileless, clean, spare, but also so big and so haunting.
