Find my love for you in the quiet,

In the calm of a comma

In the stillness of a pause

 

A love that

breathes

between the lines.

Find my love for you in my words

In the crooks of my CAPITALS

In the softness of my vowels

In the caress of my consonants

 

Love me louder than an exclamation mark!

Loop your hands around my curves in cursive

Whisper gently in small fonts

Remember me in italics

 

Find my love for you in a sentence that runs tirelessly

Running is only controlled falling

But I’ve lost all control

F

   a

         ll

              ing

  for you

 

Find my love for you in a chain of clauses

tied together by semicolons;

you are the subject, loving you will always be my verb

 

Not once, have I questioned my love for you.

For you are the question I long to spend my life answering.

 

Find my love for you

In the spaces in between

Us and the world.

 

You are all my words to me.
