  • I don't want to subsume you
    Submerge you
    Absorb you

    I want to be next to you
    Part of you
    Connected to you

    I can't see myself sitting alone
    Without you
    Sans you

    With you, space beside me feels fuller
    More complete
    Denser

    My opinions echo back to me
    Shallowly
    Superficially

    My thoughts need your acoustic tile
    Shaping them
    Tempering them

    Arms around me, I am solid
    Complete
    Whole

    You give me substance
    Grout me
    Grok me

    No miserable effort will do this justice
    Folly
    Daffery

    But between the lines find the truth
    Effortless
    Crystal

    Like this poem, without you I'm
    Unfinished
    ...
