heaven, i won’t leave

like a prescription drug
repairs damaged cells, springs forth new, better ones
like a reverberating drum
dum, dum dum dum, the heart beats involuntary rhythms
uncontrolled boundless free
like an overused metaphor
she shines light to the edges,
bring laughter to the sides of the square
smiles softly while i cook kosher in the other room

you’ve done it
trapped my heart
in this comfortable prison
a heaven i won’t leave
manacled, painlessly to your side,
arms twirling twisting bending shaping to be locked in yours
breathing you in like the first breath

this cell is lovely
you can throw away the key
