Complexity// an attractive word
sexy. nuanced. containing a variety of things
how does one contemplate an echo?
if we kissed//would you remember in 20 years?
fondly//sweetly? would a smile hug your lips?
as I hugged your mouth? would you lean into me?
what makes a thing romantic?
what makes a cloud or gesture or song romantic?
how do we diffuse jealousy?
our love is ephemeral// only exists in dreams
and moments we create together when we share the same breath && space && daringly tender hopes && fears // what does it mean to be hopeful//
how do we contend with fear?? & longing && v tangible boxes & barriers &&
how do we write mindlessly when the mind is full?
endlessly// rhythmically full of thought and idea and clarity of purpose//if only for an instant fleeting
impression lasting and seeking another moment of wisdom or truth or strength of mission and sovereign dream
everything you hand me feels like home
i hold it in my hand // palm open // as i hold you
mostly in moment && memory && magic
like the mountains i look at as i type
