Poem: Set You Free So I Can Fall

I'll set you free,
a distant memory
like the smoke ribbons dissipating into the stale air.
You should escape into the nothingness of my mind.

I've set you free,
my ineffable
to where I begin 
and you end,
so I may find love.
I've burrowed my fear in her laughter
and forgiving smile.
Her voice undresses my insecurity.
I no longer want to feel different,
just to feel her only.

An insatiable appetite
for velvet lips
I have tasted but once.
Dead butterflies
flutter again.

Her name dances through my subconscious.
It sobers my loneliness,
and reminds me I have a home
Thank you,
my ineffable.
Destruction and fate
are quite similar.
