A Medley of Love

come, my sweet darling.
let us take the
less travelled roads
and see where they lead us.
let us journey across
rivers that diverge
through hills of moss
and make history at their banks.
let us hold hands
and watch the stars sing myths
as your head rests on my chest.
let us look into each other’s eyes
and give love a deeper meaning.
let us make trouble and
watch the world envy our naivety.
come closer, my love. you exist —
because I am not enough.
