Love
is less about flowers
than it is
about Monday mornings,
when all the world
dreads the commute,
yet I
am eager
to share a space with you.

Some dream
of serenades and starlight,
and yet
I often find myself
lost
inside of mundane fantasies,
the simplicity
of your shower wet hair,
your sleepy-eyed
gaze.

Fingers fit
so snugly together
in dashboard light
like lips and hips
in the blue glow
of
satellite stereo screens,
where I
long to take you
again.

So many men
seek the perfection
of
wakeless dreams
that have no basis
in reality,
while I,
unlike most,
want to dive head first
into your
muddy waters
and become
tangled up in every complication
that is us.

My love --
you are the everything
I desire,
flaws and highlights,
every good
and all of your bad,
the sum
of a lifetime spent longing
for that
which only you possess,
and I
am not -ever-
going to give up on
Monday mornings,
or you,
or us.
I can feel it in mine, as assuredly you can feel it in yours.
