Know…  [POEM]

Let me kiss you
like i haven’t seen you all day,
All day,

and every other

And i will hold you
the same way,

i promise

i will give anything to you
and do everything for you
experience it all with you

for as long as we are together,
to be honest

fall asleep in our clothes,
for some reason, your chaos
comforts me

i’m not wondering
so i won’t wander
deliberate decisions to deviate from distance
without ponder
i am under the act of being natural

this ain’t fiction,
just factual

something different than
what was unexpected
a heart alone should not be trusted
but this is all of my soul,
so i respect it

box marked fragile,
and i have checked it

so i touch you accordingly
gently with intention
the effort rewarding me

how does it feel to know?
beyond the amazing you ever imagined
how does it feel to go?

Can you stand the progression of better?
Are you fine with being amazed perpetually?
i will be yours
and you will be mine
All ways, Always, and Ever
i am certain of you, especially

reminding you with kisses
and consistency
hope that you’re listening.

love is… [POEM]

love is
watching her grow


being watered
and attended to
and mended too

she was due

love is

the time it took, the patience
a calendar of seasons,
the waiting

guarding her best interest
from near and afar
the whole time
aligning almanacs and stars

she was planted before me
i, just handed the responsibility…

love is
how you make time
seem moot
getting her to barefoot,
from boots

all the socks she’s worn in-between
some for comfort
some weren’t clean
some had holes
some were never seen

love is
me wanting to see her toes
and being fine with tasting them
the wine of her grapes organically grown
no sense in wasting them

never done that before

love is
weathering the storm
an appreciation of the forecast,
no whether it’s warm
but warning her to prepare
being not vulnerable to go it alone,
because i will be there


for even spring has its share of cold
and the summer won’t always present clear
there will always be an opportune precipitous cloud,
rain should produce hope, not fear

and then there is the winter
after the greatest fall ever,
we enter

love is

the explanation
talking about everything along the way,
the destination

every seed produces fruit
love is knowing how to eat it,
straight from the ground,
or as juice
the process depends on you

love is
serving her
in balance
and maintaining my effort
in challenge

even after time,

Love is so patient,

Love is ever so kind

and she is love.

love is mine.
