Not Every Day Is Beautiful..

Not every day is beautiful,

But you are.

I can’t wait for some days to end.

But you’re my beginning

My middle

My meeting place.

Some moments I just want to be alone.

Even though every moment with you is perfect,

It doesn’t always feel like that though.

Not in that moment.

When plans fall over

When no one sleeps

When I’m overwhelmed.

You may deplete me some days.

But you complete me every day.

You’re the bags under my eyes at all hours of the night.

My tears of fatigue.

You’re also,

My heart

My breath.

You’re the ground that brings me to my knees

The ground you walk on that I adore

My grounding.

You’re my weakness

And the strength that I need

The build up

The break down

My vulnerable.

You are the tune I hum

My scream

My follow

My fall

My finding.

The broth of my bones

My skin.

My thoughts before and after.

You are mine but not mine to keep

But you keep all of me.

Even though I ache.

Even though some days are so damn hard.

Even though I doubt I’m doing this right.

Not every moment is beautiful.

But you are.

You are the promise of love in a tired storm.

Even though I may wish some moments away.

You’re the hands of the clock I will to stand still.

And I am at the hands of you.
