Poem: “I want a Lover” 

I want a lover that never forgets that we could’ve made other choices but chose to be together.
…a lover that feels crazy blessed to be with me and have my attention.
…a lover who’s willing to go deeper, higher, farther just to make me smile.
…a lover that’s willing to get uncomfortable, to go past “just me” seeking to edify “we.”
…a lover who makes me feel like a giddy school girl and a mature woman all at the same time.
…a lover that makes me smile even through the toughest of circumstances and darkest of days.
…a lover who calms my fears and eases my pain.
…a lover that’s proud and privileged about sharing in each other’s gains.
…a lover that’s fierce and gentle, hype and calm, energetic and peaceful, tender and strong.
…a lover in whom I find tremendous joy, honesty, loyalty, protection, security.
…a lover that uplifts and lays me down to sleep.
…a lover who doesn’t mind “doing nothing” and just being in my presence.

I want a lover to whom I can reciprocate all these things and more. Most of all,  I want to BE this type of lover.
