For My Beloved

Written by Sydney Paolercio – Instagram: @sydneypaolercio

Without you, dearest, I couldn’t see or hear, 
or feel or think
or live.

I don’t know what to do without you.
To clasp you now and feel your head close-pressed—
Then, only then, can I greedily consume your presence.

My love is selfish,
So love me today,
& yesterday,
Love me at the ungodly hour
untitled man to whom I gave my heart.

My own Darling Boy—
You’re the only one.
All my thoughts have been with you,
So come quick—come quick to me.

It takes a certain intelligence to love,
It’s like begging for mercy of a storm.
So don’t promise me fair sky above, don’t promise me kind road below;
Just walk with me, my love— 
any way the wind blows.
