i fell in love with

i fell in love with

the sound of your breath

the beat of your heart

your devotion and strength

 

i fell in love with

the basin of your ador

the fluency of your speech

to get others I implore

 

i fell in love with

the way your eyes saw me

never with reckless abandonment

but with a gentle guarantee

 

i fell in love with

both a man and a boy

to have one but also the other

i've never known such joy

 

i fell in love with

a desperate, fleeting moment

one that must be tethered down

with a forbearing temperament

 

i fell in love with

you

    Wow. this describes what love truly is- knowing the other for what they are and not judging on the basis of appearance. It's such an honest piece. Well done!
