The Lesbian Chronicles 17 : menemsha


darling :
long have i waited
for you
to arrive.

truthfully my love
there were times
days months years
when i thought you
would never be here.

yet here you are
bones and pulse and skin
no longer a figment
a fragment
a fervent wish.

the totality of your love
forces me to acknowledge
( slowly ever so slowly )
that i am deserving of kindness
and a place in this world.

gazing into your
ocean grey eyes
memories of
menemsha in the winter
the two of us
warmth against the cold.

i surrender to your pleasure
losing myself
in the depth
in the deep of you
feeling joined in a way
i have never before felt -
my own unified theory.

breathing you in
i rest my head
on your welcome chest
knowing you will always be:
a heart without question
someone to watch over
