True Love This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

the spaces between our words
are the spaces between the feathers
of swans.
long, and elegant, intertwined together
my fingers cannot hold yours any tighter.

take me with you
my one and only.
I will follow you to our doorstep.
to our kitchen, to our bedroom.
into the dark. into the light.

and your scent lingers on my skin
as long as your memory lingers
in my mind. that smile
etched into those lines
around your eyes.

you are free, now.
I let go of you, yesterday:
come back to me,
only when you feel safe.
love. trust. respect.
there are no rules.

lover, my lover.
our love is the space between my lungs
the silence through my toes
the depth of my veins
the cacophony in my heart.
