I absolve 4/15/2018

Love needn’t erupt


or hit you like bricks,

it needn’t be huge, wild,

or thick




love shimmers subtly

whispers quietly




it is not the big dates

the expensive gifts

the extravagant displays


Every once in a while


all I need, all I crave:

is your presence in the room,

the sound of you breathing

the look in your eye

the comfort of your conversations

a hug in the morning


I absolve money, power, fame,


all I crave: is a moment with you
