softened sadness

your night-shrouded eyes
have stayed with me

I will not apologize
for pulling out my heart
to read its pulses,
blood curling into
little letters

still, I know you
deserve a genre
of happiness

you have seen the truth;
now it is my turn,
my self-appointed duty,
to cushion your fall
& kiss where it hurts

if only for a moment
