It was after the first embrace
that I knew
love was something that we could make
create it against the odds
that have forbidden our existence.
Sitting with you is like
sharing a lung
occur between answers to questions
queries of every kind
I want to write a dictionary with you
So that we can fill it
with new words that define this exclusive connection
Intimacy at its best is sometimes found
in held hands
heads on stomachs
and living in each other’s presence.
In my dreams,
love can be the sweetest thing.
I want to grow with you.
Cultivate it at the edges
At the contours of this wave that is also the water its made of.
After the first embrace
I knew you were different.
I knew that we could be
of the most radical force
the world hasn’t seen yet.
