Magpie 132

where do you want me.  i want everything.  all that is us.  we.  ours.  this morning i looked and i saw our world – saw you, smiling back (unconditional).  you are that man. you’ve come and found me.  seen me.  do you know that i am in love with you?

(of course you do)

home is what you’ve given me.  i press my face against you, against these books, against this story we’ve written. simple words, a home i sit in and await our new chapter.  wind and cars and birds and footsteps – but all i know is your voice this morning.

he died – i wrote. i wrote – you read. you wrote – i listened. i was brave – you were strong. she died – we were born.

all i know is peace. how is that (no more questions). i, the phoenix, rise. someone said i should ask for everything.

If you clean it up, get analytical, all the subtle joy and emotion you felt in the first place goes flying out the window. ~ Andrew Wyeth
