merniemern A #love #poem.

Love isn’t easy.
No, not that committed love,
that year after year,
day after day routine
love.
Same face changed only slightly with
imperfections of time,
same face in the morning,
same face at night.
Love isn’t easy to watch—
watch myself morph into you, we
promised this long ago when we said “I do”—Did we?
Even know what becoming ONE meant?
I mean, literally?
Love comes with sacrifice that is unknown to two self-proclaimed “lovers”—
lovers don’t know shit.
No, not until trials and tribulations come. Not until temptation comes.
Not until illness and death come.

You—like a lighthouse—you are nothing more than a lighthouse at the shore of my turbulent sea, my
back and forth sea, my
colorful, life-filled, dark, shark infested sea.
You are nothing more than a light
waiting for me, guiding me home.

Love isn’t easy.
No, not that committed love.
I make you dinner, sometimes. We have casual talks.
We laugh together like best friends.
Sometimes you sleep on the couch. Sometimes in our bed.
But, we always wake up and meet in the kitchen to have coffee and
we always say good morning and you always
kiss my forehead before you leave for work.
Love isn’t easy, but familiarity is a welcomed thing.
Your face and your warm hands on me.

My light, my safe haven in uncertainty.

You said once that when you die,
that even then,
you wouldn’t leave—
that you would wait for me…

My light—at the shore of my life’s sea.

Love
never had to be
easy for me. -----------️------------

merniemern @axmbakes this felt more like a confessional 😛
20 things most people might not know about me.: 1. I can't follow choreographed moves.
2. I've tried watching Amityville Horror many times, but I can't make it past the fly scene.
3. I used to ride my skates/skateboard everywhere as a teen.
4. I was a "tomboy" and was always more comfortable that way than being a girly girl.
5. I draw like a second grader.
6. I get social anxiety.
7. I've been writing poetry since I was 12, although I never thought I was any good.
8. I learned to speak English in second grade.
9. Nobody "taught" me to believe in God.
10. I daydream way too often, on a Walter Mitty level.
11. I used to love bananas. Then, one day, I hated them. Haven't had one since I was 16.
12. I'm fascinated by dating sites. Especially the "farmers only" one.
13. I've had two surgeries in my right ear and hear a "kshhhhhhhhhh" sound 24/7
14. I rejected having recommended facial reconstruction for medical purposes. But, now I want an eyebrow lift. lol
15. My superpower would be to heal children of their troubles.
16. I am "moved" to pray for people, strangers or loved ones, for very specific purposes.
16 (a) I have a small tattoo on the back of my neck that reads "pray for us"
17. I think I think way too much.
18. I hate the sound of t.v. and will only watch two shows. AHS and GOT
19. I have fainted at the sight of blood.
20. I can't stand cold weather. Weather below 35 degrees makes me shiver so hard, I want to vomit.
Your turn! Tag me on your posts.
