unnamed 1.9

How do I escape
the image of your face
or the words off your tongue
or the smell that lingers
after a hug

How do I prevent your name
from devastating me
when I hear it
A curse and a blessing
rolled into one

How do I stop loving you
when all I know
is to care for you
and make sure your life
is full of happiness

How do I separate
friend from lover
when each breath you take
fills me up in ways
I will never understand
