"i am a cactus you hold in your heart"

her blue eyes a sparkling rain

 “i am a cactus you hold with your heart”

her words wet and running down my face

“the blue of our pain in our sky”

my words dripping from my lips

“my breath a blue shadow on white snow”    

my arms holding her red earth

“my spines are just leaves can’t you see”

as she walks her trail through me
