Fight For Me


If you must fight for me

Don’t fight in times of fear

Don’t lower yourself or

bend in places not meant to bend

Don't grovel from your knees spilling

idealisms onto barren earth whispering

about an abstract harvest of what could be

but

never

was


Spare me the reminders of happy happenings

Don’t attempt to tease up a

loving version of me that

you’ve chased off long ago


Those weapons of adolescent wars

have rusted been knocked dull and now

thud against this calloused skin


If you must fight for me

fight for me in times of peace 

and silence

and stillness

and comfort

Fight for me while my heart happily  

purrs in the warmth and safety of your lap


If you must fight for me

Be savage with kisses that

snatch away my low moments

Pierce my flesh with stares of admiration

Scrape me down with a flirty compliment

Claw a path through the guts of space to

draw yourself into me as if it's

the only place you ever belonged


Inhale my exhales

Exhale for my inhales

Hang on

Allow a lingering embrace its time to 

entangle and constrict

any divisive concern that

roams our connection's corridors


If you must

fight for me

be ruthless and ugly to commit to our beauty

Hunt with a jagged loving disposition that is

bloodthirsty

for a quiet conversation

on some park bench 

of a perfect early evening

where the sun begins 

her 

rest


Be here with me

On your feet

With a straight proud spine

Hold my hands

Lock into my eyes

Fall passionately in sync with me

Reveal yourself as an oasis of joy

A safe place

The reason to rush home

My twin spirit


If you must fight for me

Fight for me 

But

Fight then

Not now

Fight then

For now


Fight
