You are life-giving and shockingly beautiful.
You are water, my love.
I would swim inside you, and you inside me
Forever, yet would be drowned by my devotion.
So I dam you up. Make myself in to strong walls to shield me from you.
I could say it works.
Yet the truth is, you already flow within me.
My love for you, finds ways to permeate, despite myself.
Your love for me dissolves every barrier.
For you are as free and wonderful as the air.
It is entirely why I love you.
