the words

Sometimes I struggle
with the words
I want to use
to express
what I feel for you

I want to say
I love you
but
I don‘t want you
to get that
wrong:

not in the sense of
‚let’s take things forward‘;
we are already
ahead of things
like ignorace
and jealousy

I‘m not saying
‚lay down with me‘;
we are upright with each other
and face the situation
as it is

It doesn‘t mean
‚now it’s getting serious‘;
on the contrary –
lighthearted I want to honour
how serious we are
all the time

I just wanna say:

I love
you being who you are
to me right now

I love
you being part of my life
just in that very spot

I love
what we
share
