Guarding the Guarded

IMG_3809.JPGTo kiss the cage that protects your heart;
slip my hands inside your sternum and pull,
exposing a place untouched.
Take it on the open road,
bury it under an X in a sacred somewhere guarded by the gods old and new.
Our starlit secret in a cedar glade;
a meeting place for those lost, moon-filled moments.
Anything to keep you safe.
