Dear Friend

from Within​/​Without by Danya River



Dear friend, I'm in love with you again
Funny how I felt so sure of our extinction
The way you love me makes my breath go soft
makes my logic weak
it dissolves my thoughts

I forgot my judgments of you
It's so good to love you purely and deeply
Madly and truly sweetly

I love the way you wear the pant you made
how you author words
how the world's your game
and you sense the beauty in most everything
and you draw it out
and you make it sing


I remember the morning you first touched me
wove my breath entangled in your seaweed eyes
rocked me in the cradle of your focus
lured my tears and caught them in your kisses

you said to me the other day
that you love the way that women age
and you asked me if I'd love you with a belly and no hair

and I giggled, though I meant to say
that I would love you anyway
that if you couldn't walk, you lost your thoughts
I wouldn't care


Dear friend, I'm in love with you again
