He says I-Love-You
and it flows like the moon’s
light infused with ocean waters.
His words pack a punch
and I swear I’m seeing stars
I want to fight back with love.
"to want to" and "to be able to,"
I travel betwixt them.
Is where I stand now
Is my destination.
What does arriving look like?
I do not now.
I only know that when I dream it,
it looks something like synergy.
Each day as passion
illuminates the red sea
that runs within me,
I feel that I am one page closer
to being on the same chapter as he
that is…if he waits for me.
