How do I write that I love you? How do I say that I love you in a way that doesn’t want to possess you? When you laugh and your eyes squint it fills me up. When you look into me, you make me feel seen and alive. Like I want to feel everything. Your touch, your gaze, your compassion to all my energy, makes me feel like warming up the world instead of burning it down. The way you process the world astounds me. You make me more loving to myself. You challenge me to be better than my bad habits. You challenge my negativity. I have never felt more love than when I am around you. I feel free and trusted. You nurture me in a way I have needed. When you let me in and let me see you, I am recharged. And I have asked you for deeper. And I am also scared of deeper because like you I am clumsy until one of us has to be the gentle one with the steadier touch. You make me secure even when I fear myself. You’ve helped me see my magic as the reality it is. And I don’t think that you see that you are magic. You give me so much life. I need security. I desire security that we can’t always guarantee. You teach me patience with me.
