Find my love for you in the quiet,
In the calm of a comma
In the stillness of a pause
A love that
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
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.
