  • A Contrast

    he loves the roadsides' fresh cut grass
    and i long for the amber glow of tiger lilies
    it's the little things
    that keep us strong
    he keeps me warm
    while i keep him busy
    yet he always knows how to surprise me
    just when i think i have it all figured out
    he's a curve-ball
    in a world full of four-seam fastballs
    i can't do him justice with anything that i write
    because there's always some trait he possesses
    that i manage to leave in reserve
    always a corner of his garden that i leave uncultivated
    he keeps me safe
    and i keep him cared for
    i understand the way he moves
    thinks and feels
    he'll never have to wonder if I love him
    whenever I begin to lose hope
    he reignites the fire in my heart
    and makes me feel the butterflies that didn't die during the chilly winter
    he captivates me with his intelligence
    and i thrive on keeping him at bay
    i want to be his compass
    in a world full of aimless people
    he keeps me alive
    because there have been days where i doubted my capabilities
    when i lost everyone
    he became my perspective
    and kept me afloat
    in a current of negativity
    he keeps me same
    and i keep him
