Your Moon

You tell me that I’m your moon and every night you’re swallowed by the tide that I use to pull you in,

And in those moments nothing else matters when you’re next to me, your skin on my skin.

Your eyes tell me things that there are no words for,

My eyes tell you that you’re all I want and more.

When your body shivers as we lie between these sheets, I will draw you closer me,

I will warm your body and pull you down into my sea.

Kiss me like I am your only lifeline or kiss me sweet and tender,

Hold me like you own me, for you I surrender.

Ignite your magic deep within my bones.

Hold me tight like you’ll never let me go,

Kick off these covers or just take it slow.

I just want to feel your magic deep within my soul.

In these moments nothing else matters when you’re next to me; your skin on my skin.

Your eyes tell me things that there are no words for,

My eyes tell you that you’re all I want and more.

I love that you’ve made me your moon that gets to shine every night down upon you.

Can I pull you in just as the tide would, every single night until the dawn breaks through?

And, forgive me if it’s too much to ask, but can you make me your burning sun, too?

Will you let me shine down on you for the whole world to see that it is me and only me that warms you?

Everything you are is all that I desire,

Every time we touch you set my world on fire.

When you hold me like you own me, for you I surrender.

You ignite your magic deep within my bones.

When you hold me tight like you’ll never let me go,

And you kick off these covers or just take it slow,

I feel your magic deep within my soul.

Him

Where should I begin? I feel like my words my are going to fail me, but let me tell you a little something about him. 

I am more free with him than I have ever been or even ever thought I could be with another soul in all my life. It’s incredible and somehow it just continues to get better and better. It’s mind blowing to constantly connect with another soul on such a deep level, whether it be physically, mentally or emotionally and it’s beyond my tiny human brain’s comprehension. But my god, his love is extraordinary! 

Let me break it to you though–we’re not “perfect” by any means! Nothing in life is ever perfect, and we are both the first to admit that we’re sometimes far from it. We have our highs and lows, but those lows are just drops in the massive oceans of highs. We have our disagreements, arguments and misunderstandings that usually seem bigger than they actually are in the moment; we are human after all. We’re both stubborn and passionate and we can kind of act like assholes to each other at times–warranted or unwarranted, that’s always up for debate. 

But with all that said, I truly believe that our purpose at the very end of whatever this life is, is to walk through this life together–hand in hand, side by side. I can assure you that I’ve never been more sure of anything in my entire life. He makes me strive to be a better person everyday. He makes me believe that good men still exist. He makes me believe that real men stick it out and stay even when things get tough; even when so many others have shown me otherwise. He protects me as if his life depends on it. He makes me genuinely believe that I do deserve the love he gives me; constantly, unwaveringly, and unconditionally. 

He has changed me. He’s unhinged me. He’s completely dismantled me like no one else has ever been able to do. Of course, that comes with the exception of becoming a mother which is the most important and greatest accomplishment in my life. 

To just put it simply, I am a better me because he loves me and accepts every single part of me and who I am. But it doesn’t end there… I am humbled by his grace and the love and acceptance he has for my child. He is a fierce protector and a steadfast loving male role model for my child. His heart is kind and pure. His love is solid and ever endearing. In this moment I don’t think I could love him any more; but then again, I thought that exact thing just the moment before.
