i love you.

what does that mean?

we’re a team, and 

i’d live to be with you.

it’s a waking dream—

something steady

and ethereal,

precious and surreal.

 

my love for you is as strong and free

as the breeze

flowing through my hair on a drive.

it’s a nuanced and harrowing game

of battleship:

destroying defenses,

reconstructing pretenses.

 

my love for you is as silly and 

liberating as streaking in the sun:

enticing,

inviting,

and a little reckless.

 

my love for you is alive.
