why do I love you
i love you 4 ur kindness & ur depth
the ocean-pool of your eyes
as they bore through me demanding truth
i love the way you invoke freedom
do I love you more for your integrity and independence
than for the warmth of your hand against my back
– for that I have no answer.
I love all that makes you You
the boy and the man
your arms that crushes me and your eyes that bring me pain.
All the broken parts of you are parts of me as well.
Do you remember when I was young,
confused, and drunk at 2 am?
I wasn’t sure if I wanted You
Or the attention. But then you said,
“One wouldn’t exist without the other.”
