NaPoWriMo #3

Oh

Oh and baby,
I should have mentioned it sooner-

for all the ways your eyes can bully
thick as black suns,

and although that growl at the back
of your breath, was learned
when your demons held you by the ankles
and taught you to cough until you were turned
inside out,
suited and booted with pain,

and for all the ways that you feel
this has made you a master and a man,

for all it may look like I am against the ropes
blind blue with panic
and tapping out,

for all your ridiculous bluster,
I have known love
and losing
far greater than this.

And I should have mentioned it sooner-
You will break
long before I do.
