A Different Love Poem: Dismantling

heartgrenade

I get to the very heart of you

despite the monstrous intricacies

you present –

the ironic pleasure

and clear danger

is all mine.

Here I come

to the rescue

to do

what others dare not.

No matter day,

no matter night-

whenever the undertaking

is called upon,

I arrive with my own device

to counter yours.

Why I have pursued this course

beats me-

but it’s not more

harrowing than your pulse

still, meticulously,

I manage

your alarming sensitivity

with little sweat.
