One Thousand and One Ways to Love You.

Thursday, April 06, 2017

I used to know of one thousand and one ways to show you I cared.
One thousand and one recipes for love,
and you craved every single one.
Each one started with a little piece of me:
My heart
My time
My service
My late nights
My early mornings
My lunch breaks
My dreams
My hopes
My future ...

My happiness
My laughter
My sanity
My reality
My safety
My well being

Trouble was that I kept losing myself,
and you really didn't want an incomplete lover.
I don't blame you.
It's hard to love someone who isn't whole.

I still know of one thousand and one ways to show that I care.
One thousand and one healthy recipes for love.

But they're too healthy for you.
