Things About You

What I love about your name is the savage sibilance of it
and how you draw it out of me unrestrained.
I cannot do not will not love you now, so I am loving things about you.
I carefully separate You from Things. Things, I can handle, but not you.
Your name, being one such thing, torments me night and day,
each syllable is the roaring surf.
There are other things too, of course.
Like your smile.
The strange purple on your fingernail.
The way you move.
Your feral comfortableness around me.
Your weakness for me.
Your irrational fears.
I try not to think of your eyes, your kind beautiful eyes.
I’m attempting some sort of transference, from You to just Things about You.
Better your things than other people, or so I tell myself.
