Take my hand
and we can see where this road leads
there will be signs to let us know
we are headed to a place we both desire
but in the meantime
you have my hand
and in it i hope you find
all the safety, love and peace i left for you
i hope you are able to
take the time to see
the beauty that constantly surrounds us
the destination will be there when we get there
and it will be as advertised
but right now
all that concerns me is
keeping your hand in my mine
i will always walk closest to the road with you
and of all the beautiful things that can be seen
nothing will ever compare to
having you next to me
just keep taking my hand
my love for you knows none.
i don't allow it.
i don't know what you'll need today
so i don't allow preconceived notions
of what should be transpiring, i just love you.
i destroyed them.
there is no pride in this love.
i confess it boldly.
i confess it foolishly.
i proclaim it in your absence.
i'm not bound by feelings.
feelings shift according to circumstance.
i love you beyond any current situation.
my love must be limitless.
i must connect to all your corners.
they exist but so.
i've said it a million times
and say it here again
fear does not compare to love.
my love is based on knowing.
knowing: that love qualifies for jobs
you didn't know you were capable of.
love defies explanation
and human reasoning.
so if you're asking why:
i hope that you're not expecting
some long, enchanting and complicated
poetic answer - you will be disappointed.
i love you simply because i can.
i love you because i have the capacity to.
i love you because you are worth love.
i love you because none of us deserve love.
i love you because we still somehow get it.
i love you because i am loved.
so i will love you here and every place
that exists after this.
and if i am to become to writer i desire
to be, you must know that this love story
will the told, studied, dissected and published.
and none of that will matter as much as
the opportunity to actually be in it.
i love you to the moon and back. #inspiration#love#loverofbeautifulthings#poetsofinstagram#writersofig#wordporn#wordsmith#writersofinstagram#poetsofig#poem#inktober#consistency#relationships#brokenrelationshipsla#spilledink#create#art#romance#andrewsmcneel#gallery#poetrycommunity#worldofartists#communication#intentional#poetryandchill#poetryandchillokc#loveis#marriage#dating#spokenword
"if you love a flower, don’t pick it up.
because if you pick it up it dies
and it ceases to be what you love.
so if you love a flower, let it be.
love is not about possession.
love is about appreciation." - osho
continue to grow my love, wherever you are.
grow where you have been planted.
if you ever intend to love me then know this:
i read, write, talk and sing alot
i will send you emails that read like novels
i will sing you playlists i know all the words to
i will read you proposals and unfinished poems
i will explore every nook and cranny of my ideas
and occasionally i will be uncharacteristically quiet
and in those moments i'm absorbing energy
i am catching the pulse of things around me
and i will rarely ask for but i will need help
to get back to common ground
i read rooms and study people
and if i ask a question, i have an answer in mind
i do not argue
i discuss until we discover i'm right
i won't gloat
but i will smile
some days i feel pain that's not mine
some days i cry tears for others
some days my pen bleed the thoughts of others
this is part of the gift
i just don't write for fun
i write for love
i write for comfort
i write for peace
i write for therapy
i write to sleep
i write to think
i write to explain
i write to write
i write for life
if you hate reading,
i might not be the lover for you
