so many layers to love

stomach lurching
mind fizzing
snowflake-holding
curiosity
a
need that softly suckles at your heart like the ravenous mouth of a newborn
.
certainty that blazes through any circumstances
“i will hold this flame no matter what”
uncertainty of the worrybrain eating life dry
.
an echo of mother strength and father laugh
.
the fierce boiling of the heart as the sun blazes through the horizon of this
earth
so imminent you can hardly breathe
.
the softest gentle nothingness that steals upon your pillow
alongside
the whisper of your own breath
.
there are
so many layers
to love
.
