love & sexshadow work

bend the light

he had to bend the light,
I asked him to

in the quiet moments
the in betweens
in every look

brave, not the opposite of scared
I whispered truth

bring me to shattering

let me talk to her
show me where she is
the way she hurts
how she unravels

he had to bend the light
until we could only recall a shadow

this was for me
it was never his pain to feel

he had to bend the light
my eyes told him to
spilling out what my voice
was too afraid to say

crack me open
then turn away
