Between my shadow and my soul


Call me cold and unaffectionate but,
I think love stories based on
Bouts of passion after
Tenuous separation are, tedious

The magic for me, is the slow and unimaginative,
Everyday, in-your-face, living, breathing, exhaling
Acclimatisation, patience, sacrifice, confused silence,

I love this poem:)

It rings so true.

u don't need fluttery feelings and butterflies to grow together.

This is wisdom.

Wisdom indeed.
Love grows from & survives on everyday feelings of friendship.
Passion should be the apex, but too many make it the base.
