All Of You

Is it a crime
 to no longer want
  to hide
   behind these lies
    and shallow covers
     of discretion?
Am I wrong
 to want more
  of you…
    of you?
Is it shameful
  I don’t want to share?
 carry my heart,
  so delicate
   and warm,
    in the palm
     of your hands,
      and where you go
       my heart goes.
But sometimes…
  you are gone
   for too long
    and you (and my heart)
     are too far,
      from where I lay
       my bones.
