seeing love in dark places

I appreciate the way
this world turned her back on you too
sucked the air out of each lung w/o asking
left you for dead, queer, immigrant child
I never really ran away from my pain
it just got caught somewhere in my esophagus
lost beneath the cords of survival
we’ve known each other for years
died and came back twice
just to appreciate the way you look up at the moon
and hold me down like gravity
you’ve set me on fire
