Fearless*

The woman you lost, 

who will always be dark-haired

is impossible not to want. 

I’m forever a child looking 

out my window at the night sky.

Don’t you wonder sometimes? 

I’ll tell you everything. 

I won’t change. 

The old man said the woman must 

obey the law. 

The meaning of becoming a 

historical subject. 

But I’ll touch the world 

with bare hands. 

Even if it burns.

 

*Found lines from Tracy K. Smith poems: “Don’t You Wonder, Sometimes?”, “I Don’t Miss it”  “Interrogative”.

The woman you lost, 
who will always be dark-haired
is impossible not to want. 
I’m forever a child looking 
out my window at the night sky.

Don’t you wonder sometimes? 
I’ll tell you everything. 
I won’t change.

The old man said the woman must 
obey the law. 
The meaning of becoming a 
historical subject. 
But I’ll touch the world 
with bare hands. 
Even if it burns.
