bestow (v).

please take                           
care of my love;                  
I have sent it      
over fully, with        
its itchy corners and    
dark spots exposed,    
my greatest stories   
and the softest       
secrets that still
make me gasp,                  
I even sent
the dreams that
I now see include
you beside me. 

I have placed
my love into your
hands and
I watch you run
your thumb over
its grainy edge, the way
you run your thumb
over my nose
as I am already
halfway to sleep.
