Every time love

Image result for Falling in Love

I love who I am with you

Maybe because you love me for who I am

This love is such hard work

But it is work well invested

The soft glow of the lamp creates a hazy halo around the arm I’m snuggled in

I wonder how I got to this moment and why I can’t stay in it forever

Ecstasy has left me exhausted and my thoughts turn to fuzz

I imagine that I might wake up alone, having dreamt this romance

You tell me you still have to pinch yourself to believe this is real

Sometimes I do the same

The crumpled sheets and small hickey on my left breast are all that remains of you when you’re gone

But the muscle memory of my skin recalls each touch vividly

The ping of your sweet texts provide further evidence of your existence

You are not my sometime lover

You are my every time love

Things will get harder

I know we still have a lot of work ahead of us

We are worth it

I’ll meet you in the middle

If you meet me there too
