radiant lily

indulge me
let me make my fingers imitate
the silken strands of paintbrushes
and collect sugar from your skin
to color horizons that would clothe us
allow me to
make your freckles become bonfires
when my voice vibrates upon your neck
forgive me
if i treat your glee
like mineral water that i must bathe in daily
because you see
i've never met someone
who claims to walk with painful shadows
be so cloudless
especially within your eyes
