I can't fall in love without you
But I can climb mountains
In my mind and in the world.
I can build a fortress for my career
Where I am the nurturer of a thousand dandelions
Whose choices deliver a challenge that leave me breathless and my heart racing in exhilaration.
I can smash boulders with the force of palms pressed flat against desperation.
I can ask for help without being owned and I can give it without losing myself.
I can build, destroy, rectify, satisfy.
I can change my mind
And it isn't an issue.
There's "need" and then there's you.
You're the icing on the cake
And for the mean time I'll just watch my weight, thanks.
