Only Mine

I dare not call you only mine just yet.

Uncertainty forbids me such a deed.

Believe me when I say I don’t regret

Your stark descent into my heart. My need

Extends past only you; there’re ghosts to net,

And demons yet to slay. But when I read

The depths your eyes contain, I can forget

My troubles. Sow in us our faith’s own seed:

I dare not call you only mine—until

The stars I pick can decorate your heart,

Or mine eyelashes make a nest for you—

My faith in us demands my heart be still.

Whence you in me, and I in you a part,

And you’ll be only mine, and that is true.
