This is perfect. Love is terrifying too. My 'The Boy' is currently on his second 12-hour flight somewhere over the Pacific on his way to see me for the first time and I have no idea how I feel but everything will be fine as soon as the airport shuttle pulls into my driveway tomorrow morning. This poem is one of the most perfect things I have ever read, especially right now.
Thank you ^^ How long until your 'The Boy' returns from le Spain? I actually met mine while he was in Spain, though he is English like me so we've got all the pop culture in common. I like it very much when he speaks Spanish though ;D
it was powerful, but there's something about the last three lines that doesn't strike me right; perhaps it's the meter? i know it's free verse, but they just don't flow into one another as well as the rest of it. otherwise, it's strong and the briefness makes it stronger.
