Linda Crate- A Poem

you’re the one
you’ve made me recall the edges of
a smile whose topography before you
was eclipsed by rocks of maudlin grey —
you chase the darkness of days away,
cutting through the darkest clouds with
your light that resounds joy like a 
Christmas carol; you’ve etched your
anthem in my heart, and the wings of hope
flutter in my chest beneath skeins of blood —
you’re the only one that I can trust;
I feel like I could tell you all my secrets,
but still you would fall over me in waves
of love, I’ve never entrusted anyone with
the key of my heart — yet I believe in
you well enough to let you crack that code.
