I was inclined to stray away

From the cliché of certain

Words on a page but

I love him.

I love him without any condition

It’s like a tradition I didn’t know I had

Until I looked him in the eyes and was

Affirmed in my suspicions

I love him.

“I love you,” he said. My heart didn’t skip or flutter

My pulse didn’t race. I accepted those words like the religious accept fate.

“I love you, too,” I responded.

I have never believed so strongly in the antithesis of hate but

This man makes everything in me rise and though I could never own him,

I know him as

My moon, my stars and my sky and I am the sun in his light.

I love him.
