Lent Post #24: I Love You

I love you.
That’s all I wanted to say.
Before other words, thoughts and emotions get in my way.
Before the cultural construct of masculine and feminine interfere,
I have to tell you that because it’s something you need to hear.

Because often in our society,
Love is often associated with a certain kind of passion,
The certain result of a certain kind of sensual reaction.
If people always tell me there are different kinds of love.
But see, I vehemently disagree.
We tend to carve things up artificially,
Based on differences that add up to superficiality.
This is why we always end up wanting more,
Because we haven’t realized that love is all the same at its very core.
I want to hear you talk, not because of what will do later…
Maybe, but just because I enjoy the pleasure of your company.

I love you.
That’s all I wanted to say.
Before other words, thoughts and emotions get in my way
I love you.
Thanks for getting me here,
For helping me work through all the trouble, and the fear.
I love you
