The Wick by Robbie Ahmed

You wonder

how you ended up falling

in love

with such darkness

in another person.

Maybe it was because

it was the kind of darkness

that you did not fear.

Maybe It was

a kind of darkness

so familiar,

that you believed

that if you just

came close to the heart of it

you could see a wick,

and light it back.


my love,

you ended up here

not because you were broken

or incomplete,

but because

you carried enough light

for the both of you.
