Dedicated to my beloved global tribe. Thank you all for helping me expand my understanding of love, again and again. You bless me endlessly –

The way you love me

breaks all the rules

friend-zoned by choice 

no expectations, no fools


Holding space for my disasters 

seeing beauty in this monster

you reflect the best of me

and we’re simply happy together


Long conversations, every time

no topic off limits, no judgements

healthy verbal coprocessing

filled with appreciative sentiments


You rekindle my innocence

with the warmth of your smile

unassuming and genuine

never baited or on trial


I’ve heard this was impossible

of course I believe in magick

you’ve given me back my voice

singing forgotten songs back


I want to kiss you all over

like a child kisses their teddy

I want to go on adventures

give you the world if you’d let me


No shame in these pure feelings

no expectations to create taint

the distance between us imagined

only serving to help us appreciate


You are my beloved and I yours

nothing I have ever restricted

as you equally share all you can

together we are truly unlimited


So take my hand my friend

lay your head on my chest

let me stroke your hair a bit

show all how we love best
