Help

How can I help you
when you’ve slammed the door
on me, on us
on any hope I have
of even talking to you?
But what do I do
when I know
you need me, or
at least,
you need the jolt
that I provide
the lightning that burns
in you
when you see me?
I have no outlet
for this electricity
and so it burns me
instead
a raging inferno
when all I want
is to hold you
by firelight.
