Aloof

It is probably good that you
Do not let me hold your hand,
Because if I could hold your hand,
I would slide my fingers in the
Spaces between yours and take
All of your ghosts that are hiding there
They would find the edge of my words
And bury themselves in my lungs
And I would not let you swallow my breath.
 
It is probably good that you
Do not let me hold your hand,
Because while taking your
Ghosts away from you
I would give you mine.
