Four Years

…Have gone by like a dream, half remembered upon waking.


Forgotten is the anxiety I once harbored for joining myself with you


Replaced now by the over-used and under appreciated “I love you’s”


That never fall on deaf ears but sometimes fly from


Stomach muscles cramped from laughing,


Lungs worn from singing,


Lips numbed from pushing violently against yours


I struggle now only with finding the words and the ways


to express myself to you so that you can understand


My adoration does not always materialize in a traditional form


Though it remains all the same


I do not define myself by you but with you


As you are a part of me.


You are another arm


Or voice


Or conscience as I need one.


The end result remains the same


I am in love and you’re to blame.
