For those who don’t know. And for Fernando, who doesn’t believe.
I remember the exact moment I felt the quickening of my reluctant heart. We were talking, sharing desert and I watched you close your eyes and part those soft full lips in tandem. You accepted the offering and closed those broody beautiful eyes like saying a prayer.
And I knew you were a kindred.
You challenge me in untold ways. You showed me muscles I didn’t know I had.
Yours is one of a kind, keep you warm when the winds blow kind of love.
A private island meant for misfits kind of thing that fits like a glove.
And I get to share it with you.
You’re unyielding nature can make for high tides, it’s true-
But it’s all wrapped in the magic myriad that is you.
