systemic adoration

i understand
her heart
is a diamond
but i am afraid
of touching it
because
these hands
have only ever
known
what it means
to break

if i were
to crack
the eggshell facade
to spill her secrets
across
the ebon seas

i don’t think
i could ever
forgive myself

but i would
gladly
inject myself
into her vein
to swim throughout
her perfection

knowing

i was trying to
assimilate myself
into her
systemic adoration
becoming
part of her

rather than
tearing
her apart
