i think love is something different…

i think love is something different

people say they want love,
but they go into relationships asking…

what can you do for me?
what can i get out of you?
who can you be for me?

that’s need. and i just think love is
something different. i think it asks different
questions. i think it looks for different things.
like…

what is this feeling with you?
what can unfold between us?
i want to know who you are.

the beautiful things they do…

the stunningly beautiful things they do

if you keep trying to find love
with people who are broken inside,
i assure you, you will spend every last
bit of your energy,
and every last moment of your life, so lost,
searching for understanding of why they do all of
the harmful, destructive things they do…

save yourself for someone who is whole within,
and i promise, you will get to live your moments,
and spend this journey,
endlessly in awe of the way they do all of the
stunningly beautiful things they do

slow magic…

wearing respect like a nice suit

by the way he walked in
wearing respect like a nice suit
and holding that

slow
magic,
with his self-love, self-required,
just radiating liberation from old men’s tales,
and because…
before he’d let me love him,
it mattered
that i love myself
