And if I’d have to explain my love for him to you,
I’d describe it as a massive ocean,
flooding all my valleys and mountains of sorrows and fears…
Washing them away,
perhaps several floods needed,
but washing out their wounds even more each time.
Sometimes the salty water hurts,
but it’s good at the same time,
cleansing me from all the gunk I’ve been polluted with
for a very long time.
So, he doesn’t even realize,
but is actually healing my emotional landscape
slowly but surely,
but more surely than I’d ever thought it’d be possible.
And the most beautiful part about it is,
that he only inspired me to do so.
In the end,
I do heal my own by my own doing,
And therefore, I am so damn grateful for you.
For your love
and the love you make me feel.
Join the tribe!
