I need you to know

I need you to know
why I still love you

A false encounter
with a broken and painful heart
does not a reunion make

So I do no judge
the awful character
of coming together
under duress

And second
I understand
the need for circles
and why I cannot be within yours

I reject
Social Media

and I fight for the freedom
that we need
to live
and so

are separate
and alone
and apart

Even though the axis
of art
and science

seemingly brings us together

to love you
is a pledge
not only to you
but to myself

That in some way
you might one day understand

The wonder
that you bring me
and the joy
that comes
from another

who knows you
and trusts you
and respects you

and believes in you
