Love is not what you thought

Love is not what you thought
it is not an ache
or a flutter

it is not steady
or wild

it is an offering

it is that he knows
that I sip my water
and gulp my tea

it is that he knows
that I want to believe
the movie is real

it is that he knows the fears
that claw back my light
and he swats at them
like house flies

it is that he knows
before I do

love is this gift
of one person
daring to know
the depths
of another.
