You and I

We must stop the haunting

ways we think

and dust the cobwebs of doubt


We must fight the demons

that whisper we are not

good enough for each other,

my love.

I cannot speak for you,

but, you spend

so much time

exhausted with yourself

you forget that this love

is impossible to be stolen

for my love has no rewards

and my clocks do not tell time.

My darling, you ask what

you are good at doing,

you tell me there are

better men.

“You’re crazy!”

I say with a smile

as I think of a hundred

things you do well.

Sitting across from you, sipping my coffee –

all I know, you and I

are better at being happy just having coffee

than anyone else I know.
