Connected in love {poem}

There is no denying our connection--
you cannot tell me that
the number of times we have
come back together
does not amount to everything.

That thoughts of me do not
intoxicate you,
not only for want of my body
entwined with yours
but for the pull towards
my being.


Our bodies know--
they know what our minds
and hearts are so hesitant
to embrace:

we were brought together.

Divine connection.

Call it what you will
but it is not some man
made application.
You are not paired at
random with me.
It is not chance;
dare I say (though I can see you smirk)
that we were written in the stars?

Why else would two humans
come to a willingness
to release hope
and realize instead
their propensity to
to create a trust so solid
that the promise of forever
is not necessary
in their sweet exchange.

We are not here to
offer guarantees,
but commit to choosing love over fear.
To take this connection
and ride it through the
ebbing waves of our mind's
need to know, and our heart's
desire to let things be.

We are not meant
to understand love.
We are meant to embrace it--
as you would me
as I stand with you at the edge of your
logic, my eyes
holding your heart
so that you know,
as you have every time before,
that we are love.
