do not push me away…

Night Sky

in the midnight hour,
when the darkness of the world
covers the hopeful glow of the moon,
your heart calls out my name –
a sound that reaches my soul
as i sleep, trudging along
the avenues of my dreams.

even as you push me away,
i can sense the pull of your energy.
it is drawing me close,
asking me to love you more,
to give you the care you crave,
but could not ask for.
you believe you are protecting
me from pain by not getting too close,
but you don’t realize the suffering
is real still and its depth
and breadth, insurmountable.
