an incandescent heart

A few of your words
and I opened my door
inviting you
you walked through every inch
of my Lukewarm being
and like a hot summer breeze
blew in the face
of my halfhearted heart

spreading yourself in me
you inhabited my existence
covering every gap
In the dark of the night 
in the light of the day
you were everywhere I turned

and I couldn’t let you go anymore
even if I prayed and tried
cos I just wouldn’t know 
how
and in what way
to live my life without you inside
