I will dance you promises
of tenderness when the snow makes the world quiet and full of hurt and suicides.
There is no compromising how I love.
I will scream when something hurt –
If you hurt me I’ll be quiet.
There will not be a storm, but a silent breeze leading me to the door,
I promise I will never settle for anything less than all of you,
and that my fingers will trace your cheeks when you sleep.
I will dance quiet nights,
And waves that will tear you down.
