Us. – A Poem

Written for My Best Friend. My Husband.

Us.

Our love is fluid.

Like water

Like tears

Like power

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.
