in all of these places

I love you here-
in the spaces in between.
in the spot where written
there would be a comma
but spoken there would just be

i love you here-
in the deep silence.
in the night sky that is so vast that
anything i could possibly say would be
wholly swallowed and
wholly consumed.

i love you here-
in the color red.
the color that is anger and fire
because even when we fight and
i raise my quiet voice,
i still love you best of all.

i love you here-
in the light of day.
even when sunlight casts shadows
on sharp angles,
even when (especially when)
i can see just who you are.
