Heavy.

Thrown around so often in this day-and-age, it might be easy to think lightly of what I’m about to say, so… First. Let me explain.

You are the light God set apart.

I am the night… You are the moon I earned by perfecting the dark. See how I enhance you?.. See how you define me?

Not meant to be. Had to be.

You are the ocean.. just washing and waving. I am dry land. Shifting and shaking, and…

Im softer when we’re embracing.

Everyday of my life I’ve spent creating… trying to make things… really anything out of everything.. ending with feelings that were fleeting and fading… Everyday felt like Monday — naturally draining, but you…

Well, you were like

that good rest on Sunday God was saving.

… I love you.

Feel the weight of what I’m saying?

Discretion.

Discretion.

It was a brief case.

A fading memory that my soul can still trace.

Our desires lurked in shadows. So still. Just waiting.

Oh, the wrong turns your hands took in all the right places.

Do you remember the fear and fantasy-filled embraces?

How our hands became tied like the most delicate of laces

woven between the secrecy that kept our heart beats racing?

The risk of losing it all just to feel a little

after loving too much with hearts so brittle.

Knew how much it would hurt them…

We could only dream of being perfect.

Ashamed that when I close my eyes,

it still feels worth it.

Echo.

Echo

Once upon a time, we declared it. And maybe… that’s all we needed.

It was loud. It might have even reached the clouds.

Those words left our lips and danced off walls and ceilings.

Reflecting “us” in that moment. The vibrations of our feelings…

Drifting through time and dropping through space.

And yes, from where we stood, the sound started to fade.

Same statement. But further away.

And now, though we can no longer hear it…

In a way, it’s still alive.

Just above our frequency. Ahead of our time.

But wherever it is now, it’s still true.

And maybe, one day we’ll catch up to it too… reunite with our own hearts singing…

I love you.
