158.

With every day that passes,
I grow closer to my demons.

For every wave that crashes,
I find another soulful reason.

To love with dignity, and respect for myself —
Culture and higher values.

Conquering myself, and learning how to.

Since I’ve met you, my world has opened up to more purpose.
I needed a real woman in my life, someone who is earnest.

I yearn this.
I trust this.

I’d never burn this,
I must give — all of me, if you give me all of you.

The limitations that are uncurling,
I want this, like a purchase.

I want this like a desire strong as hunger.

I feel it,
& you feel this too.

Everyday I am thankful
For finding someone as real, as you.
