i've loved you so long

At 4 years, the relationship with Z is the longest one I have had.

Some aspects are drudgery. The minor arguements, the petty irritants. Unmade beds and unswept kitchens and forgotten resolutions to put away socks or pick up the coffee mugs. A conveyor belt of chores and small annoyances that are the price of cohabitation and taming babies.

But that's just the minor stuff. When we do things right it is magical. I know we do things right when we laugh a lot and kiss a lot and when our eyes speak more than our words do. When we manage to surface from the well of tiredness in order to be with one another.

When we shed our worries and burdens and annoyances like old skins, when we leave them like a trail of discarded clothes. When we exchange whispers in the dark. When the trail of his fingers on my skin unravels me.

And my mind feels like it's on the brink of grasping a vast and glorious secret and my body becomes a garden filled with fireflies.

When are you going to write a damn book? Of poetry? Of water heater repair? Anything?

You weave magic with your words!
