if
agnes lam

if you know
the pain of
standing naked
in the snow
you won’t let me
stand naked
if I understand
the fragility
of a naked body
in fire
I won’t leave you
like that
If we all know
love will strip us
romance will burn us
we surely will not
walk into the wilderness
sow the seed
to let the warmth grow
we will not
turn over the secret of the butterfly lover
to fulfill our story
in that winter night
yes
we will not
even if we are eroded by love
and overwhelmed by the soil
we will not
at least you won’t
let a past without “if”
drive us to the crucible
where love has burnt into ash
