Love

thin tether 4/23/18

In my life, I have only truly loved three women:

 

My high school sweetheart,

a burning flame with a college crush,

 

and now

your daughter.

 

Losing a love is hard

and it destroys your soul

a little more every time

 

but I was never prepared me for the lost of their families.

 

Their mother became my mother,

caring for me in their own special ways

showing me love

 

Their father became my father

showing me how to be a better man

welcoming me

 

Their little brother became my little brother

to guide and mentor

looking up to me

 

And just like those loves

their families too,

faded into void

 

phantasmal.

yet vivid.

 

now, every interaction with your family

every breathe of kindnes

sends a shiver of fear down the core of my being

 

for our connection is but a tether,

to be cut

 

 

at the first sign of trouble.
