January

When I say ‘always’

I mean I will hold you

for months and months

of January

and weather every

winter in your heart.

I will ask Gaia if

all timeless loves must end

and their lovers part –

if to be one

we must be two,

loving ourselves

before we can begin.

I will disregard her

words, anyway,

choosing sacrifice

and interminable seasons

of loss and loneliness

to find any way

you and I

can begin

and end

a cold December

together.
