She is the most beautiful, surprising blessing I’ve ever encountered in my life. Hearing her laugh, talking about nothing and everything with her, sharing such a deep and endless fount of love between us…it’s all more than I could have ever hoped for.
I don’t know that I deserve someone so perfect in every single way. But I do know that I’ll be the best and brightest version of myself until the day I die–because with her at my side, there isn’t any other way to live.

Okay I have 6 minutes to write a poem
I’ve been drinking
and truth be told I’m not entirely done.
your distance makes me feel warmer
as if the way you reciprocate
every other moon
brings more brightness
to the skies claimed
under your name.
The way you bury yourself
rather than leave me to appreciate
the nuance of air
renders all wandersome thoughts
shovels, built into my wrists
the pulse of me
calling to your subsurface
that I might again
how is your morning
and, beyond carving
lapis out of clouds,
how might I better
the stride of your soaring?”
