Our Love

I woke up this morning, got into the shower and wrote you a poem.

I wrote about how we are without power–

The power to be around each other and feed each other sweet nothings.

The power to be without each other’s love and the ability to change what was and what could never be.

I wrote a poem about how we love each other in fear.

The fear to lose–

To lose what is and what could always be.

The fear to lose each other while we are trying to find one another.

I wrote a poem about hope, love and distance,

I wrote about hopeful love that transcends time zones and borders.

Our love.

You see, I love you because we defy nature, norms and expectations.

Naturally, our love is a sin that is formidable.

Formidable not because it is impossible, but because it is forbidden.

I wrote about how we are so not normal.

That we never make a fuss about big things yet we focus on the little things that matter.

Like our love.

Our love is strongly defiant and fussy—

Just like our hearts.

Although we are hopeful, we love each other in fear.

The fear that all of this might just be a dream, a phase, an illusion–

Too good to be true it seems,

But spine-chills sending it is.

I woke this morning and I wrote you a poem

Because I went to bed last night, like most nights, thinking of you.

I woke this morning and I wrote you a poem

Because you are the heartbeat to ink and the strength of my pen.

You are the wordsmith to my speechless heart and troubled mind.

I woke this morning, stood in the shower, opened cold water and got cold chill

The chills were not as intense as the ones I normally have when you race through my mind.

You are my melody,

You are my love.
