coup de grâce

i wish you every happiness

want nothing more

than for you to recognize

the light you see in me

in someone else

you deserve a person

who burns for you

who will drink up every

ounce of your care

and pour for you

from their own vessel

you deserve the sun and the stars

someone with gravitational pull

who will open the universe to you

moving you to the sublime

we have both been steeped

in so much misery

ground to dust by the man

i have to believe

it was all groundwork

for the sumptuous lives

we were meant to lead

and can only hope

we are well on our way
