The Interdisciplinary Work of Lyss England

this time around,
I don’t feel the need to
fight/flight/freeze/fuck
or to perforate my
scar-stained flesh.
it helps not to be fourteen
fifteen
sixteen
seventeen but
twenty-six. 
it helps that I have loved you
and know now
that love is
patient/kind/hopeful
not
envious/angry/selfish
loving you-
is delightful because it is true
loving you-
is the taste of sugar
after black coffee.
it helps that I have loved you.
and though my body is here,
I am sitting on the bed with you
laughing too loudly
over curse words and cold tea
and how our love
is delightful because it is true.
