"I love you. I love you. I send this message through my fingers and into his, up his arm and into his heart. Hear me. I love you. And I'm sorry to leave you." -Jenny Downham

I told you once
that I stayed up
all night
to watch the sun
rise on my birthday.
I couldn't see it
from where I stood,
so I climbed
onto the top of
my brother's
friend's van,
and waited,
wrapped up in a blanket,
and sitting on a towel,
because it rained through the night.
I sat in awe
as the sky erupted
into egg-yolk
and bubblegum

you had said.
That sunrise,
of course,
could not hold a candle
to that moment when
you looked at me,
not with your lips,
but your eyes.
