Hurt

You give yourself to me
and then pull back –
because of the way she hurt you

close to me
and then off to some distant place
where you don’t want me even to touch you

I can see the pain in your face
I can see right into the core of you
see the gaping wound –
I press my hands hard against it
to try to stop the bleeding

but sometimes
the blood seeps right through your shirt
onto the bed
all over me
until I don’t know if you will ever heal

I’m certain that I love you
but I don’t know where I am
do you?
