The Space We Need To Love

darling, the space we need to love

is the time between our fingertips

and the air underneath our lips

we don’t need people to see

to know what we can be together

I don’t love you for validation

you’re not my prize, or my bitch

you are what happens

when I close my eyes and dream

you are the manifestation

of angels taking my thoughts

formatted to the most perfect

of pictures I could ever paint


every time I look at you

face tilted in the mirror, search

my own, and find a smile

stretched across my countenance

I don’t know what I asked

to ever be graced with you

I don’t remember the prayer

but someone answered

thank them, and thank you

thank you
