To the Lover I Haven’t Met Yet. {Poem}

I am so heavenly alone right now,

but darling

I feel you.

I feel you across valleys, and

I feel you across seas.

I haven’t met you yet,

but I just wanted to tell you

that I feel you.

I’m making Post-it notes in my head

of stories I will tell you

while we sit on the kitchen floor,

drinking wine,

with dishes from dinner left messy in the sink.

I already know that your ears will be eager to take in my words,

and that my heart will hold the deepest parts

of yours.

Until we meet,

I will be here

drinking in the sweet syrup of the earth and

making myself so grand

(for you).

Because I know even from afar,

between galaxies,

between planets,

between mountain peaks,

and empty country roads,

you are doing the same

(for me).
