Keeper

The hearth
I’ve always wanted
to feel,
that warmth
at the heart
of an abyssal sea,
at the center
of an amaranthine soul,
from a flame lit
and tended to
so faithfully,
is alive
in the depths
of me.

No shadow can settle
as you keep constant guard,
devoted to having me feel
only the tenderest
of love.
