Sometimes it latches onto my soul
and slow-growing like wildflowers
fills my life with beauty.
Other times it knocks me down,
a dizzy rush I cannot control.
I look to you to steady me.
Then the world stops.
You hold me, I can’t help but smile.
Your eyes fill the empty chambers
of my heart.
The warmth takes over with your
I’m safe, I’m alive, I’m loved.
