Holding Steady

I never thought

I would rather be with someone

Than without

But here you are,

Holding me.

Our love somehow feels both

Carefree and light and expansive yet

Serious and intense and visceral.

I often cry

To try

Releasing these flames

But they miss the mark,

Turning blue lips

Salty and effervescent,

Gently yet steadily,

As ocean waves turn rock

To sand

Over the years.

I feel

Like a grain of sand,

On my last legs,

So easily pushed

Back and forth

By the tide



I love water

More than anything

Except you

Even when

Both of them

Rock me back and forth

Until I feel sick.


You make me want to

Do life better.

Hold steady.

Hold me steady.
