i have learned to love you
in secret
and silence
under blankets
and in darkened corners
i love you in
words we cannot speak
and in things we cannot do
i love you in
stolen moments
and hidden glances
that play through my mind
like a series of still images
but i also love you
like an uncontrolled fire
or the last breath i will eve take
i love you
like a life raft
in the middle of the ocean
that is life
i love you without
or categories
or promises

other than this:

it is real.
