Written for My Best Friend. My Husband.
Our love is fluid.
Who you are will always fit with who I am
Because we are water
And sometimes we are a hurricane
Sometimes we are two dueling storms
Chaos and passion
Our waters rise and destroy
But only that which is in our way.
Your waters refresh me.
The desert I have been stranded has made me thirsty
My tears have been soaked up.
And here you come to save me
And soothe me,
your love is water
For me, necessary.
For me, life giving.
My water has cleansed you
Washed away the old blood and scabs
Washed away the toxic bacteria in your life
Keeping your wounds clean
So you can heal
So you can hold more water
So you can hold more love.
And there are times we are still
We form a large lake
In us, reflections of a pink sunrise
In us, reflections of a blue day
In us, reflections of a speckled night.
We are my happy place.
We are water
No one can separate us
No matter how many buckets
Part of you
Will always be
Part of me.
