tell me
about the ways
in which you are human
flawed, broken, vulnerable
and all you have endured
in this thing called life

I promise
I will show you
there is beauty
in that brokenness
that makes you
more lovable in my eyes
more precious in my heart
than any illusion
of ‘perfect’
ever will

I will continue
to love you
despite your scars

I will love you
more

to the one
who took their time

on a sidewalk
this morning

you give me hope
in a world
that has often failed
to recognize
its own kind

I remember when I first learned that my wife was pregnant.  I was stunned, scared, and in denial.  I could think of no way that this would work.  I was selfish, and still very much a boy (no matter what my biological age was then).  Never having had a father figure of any kind, I just couldn’t conceive that I could manage.  I was worried.  I didn’t know what to do.

The only experience I had with fathering was being the stepfather to my wife’s son.  He turned out to be a fine young man (that’s for another post), despite my attempts at fathering.

wild flowers grow
from your holy mouth

through your soft skin

my world,
oh my entire world
it joyously spins in your eyes!

oh oasis of intoxication –
my desires crumble
and dreams dissolve
when you feed me your touch

stay close, my ethereal charm
keep me in your embrace
keep me warm

you are my hope
in this fading world

my diffused truth
in this eternal love affair
