Jacob and Maggie Sitting in a Tree…

 

Subconscious, unconscious, by quiet shared moments
And explosive outpourings,
Love follows the rules of osmosis
Crossing the barrier of the heart
Until equilibrium is attained.

Then

There is no longer any point in denying
That the two of you belong together.

The heart must be porous.
Open. Beautifully vulnerable.
Accepting. Forgiving.
Receiving.

Willing to trust this simple truth:
“We belong together”
“We are better together.”

And staying open because
Equilibrium is not a fixed state.
But a constant journey

Of sharing.
Of crossing barriers.

Together
