i don't understand a bit
what's so romantic
about missing-you and distance,
love stressed and strained like string
across miles of roping rivers;

it's ugly and sad
and there is no cure
because i will not wait by the letterbox
praying daily on my knees to a god i know i believe in but i'm not sure you do
to hear word from you-
that you're well;
that you're happy;
that you're eating and sleeping and feeling alive;

that's what i want, you know-
i want your vitality to blaze like the great chicago fire,
i want to see your scrawl emboldened with each word
i want to see you concretely on your feet
and certain of where you are going
without a sergeant telling you how to walk.

i want you to walk across half of the states
and back into my arms.
i want you to look me in the eye
and i want to see no hesitation back
when you tell me you love me.
i never want to cry because you're leaving
again
because you will never leave again-
i want you to love me like flames love oxygen:

blindly,
endlessly,
essentially.
much like dA's new submission page

fuck this fuck you fuck me

"i want you to love me like flames love oxygen:

Love eeeverything about this, and the poem in generel. But especially the first line of the segment I've highlighted.

No, thank y o u. I love to read beautiful things and even more so, I love it, when I learn a new way of saying "I want you to love me like blankblankblank" and you gave me that. Awesome.
