Perennial Love

And did you know
all the love you’ve showed
has blossomed in me today.

The emotional investment you made into the vacant hopes I’ve had for love
has been found to inspire self-confidence at an exceptional rate of return.

A high fidelity arrangement that will succeed at making us spiritually wealthy.

Independent and ambitious. Our paths converge to ever part.

And I find myself a separate entity with none of the anxiety.

You have done this for me.
Loved me when I was lonely
feeling undeserving
maybe even a little destructive.
You were not deterred.

You wrapped your arms around me
cradled me, literally
let me weep into the density of your chest
and heard my darkest fears.

Your presence alone quelled them.
Not even the silence of your absence will beckon their return.
