Love: An Exploration

“We can and will,” she says to me —
The voyage taken leisurely:
We cover tiny bits of skin
And other sights as taken in,
In shadows of discovered powers —
Hers and mine, but mostly, ours.

“You know I think what might be good?”
I don’t, but soon it’s understood —
There’re wishes found in secret wells,
The whole that lives in someone else,
And feel completely: cell by cell,
How much lies past what words can tell —

We take instruction and we learn,
But then we teach and guide, in turn:
We come alive in agency,
With love our only heraldry:
Then milk the hours to take our fill,
When soft she says, “we can and will”
