The Air We Breathe

The Air We Breathe

Happy Valentine’s Day (Cont’d)!

Time was
When our love was
Addictive
Intoxicating, even
Like a fine Cabernet

Time was
When our love was
Passionate
Unrepentant, even
Like a romance novel

Time was
When our love was
Magical
Hypnotic, even
Like a sorcerer’s spell

Time was
When our love was
Supportive
Unselfish, even
Like a faithful friend

Time was
When our love was
Difficult
Intractable, even
Like an unsolved puzzle

Time was
When our love was
Nourishing
Fortifying, even
Like a morsel of bread

That was then
Now our love is
Essential
Life-giving, even
Like the air we breathe
