.rivers will never do.

my love,
any place you find yourself,
stretch out, lengthen your shadow, make your skin taut. walk those legs.
my sweet,
warm them in the sun.
my heaven,
there is not room enough for you in one with none for themselves,
my dearest,
do not empty yourself there,
for you are the sea, and the sea
has never flowed into a river.
