Keep Me

Keep me
In an untouched place in your heart
And upon a sacred altar
Do this
For me so that my own diligent religion
Will not cause me to go under
You may
Love everything you touch
And lust
More elegant beings than I’ve power to be
But do not
Ever put out the candle burning in your soul
I could keep alight
For eternity.
