I wish you were here

"It pains me to know you're hurting further than my arms can reach, that I am unable to protect you with the entire span of the Pacific between us, that no number of emails or texts or FaceTime minutes can bandage the bruises he hammers into your skin. There are days I think of you until the expression on my face is a postcard he will not let you read: I wish you were here, I wish you were here, I wish you were here. I keep three clocks set to your timezone as reminders that my 2AMs are your almost middays, that while the moon wanes in this sky you are under the sun someplace else, feeding breadcrumbs to birds in a park wishing for wings of your own and I imagine that for a fraction of a moment, you're not so afraid. Fly home to me,  where the hands that hold you will tremble with passion not violence, where you will not be a possession but the universe I inhabit, fly home to me."

I'm no longer mad at you for leaving me behind…
