Awe, black love

Awe, black love

(Source: milkandheavysugar)

“What was it that made this human love so much more desirable to me than the love of my own kind? Was it because it was exclusive and capricious? The souls offered love and acceptance to all. Did I crave a greater challenge?…Or was it simply better somehow? Because these humans hate with so much fury, was the other end of the spectrum that they could love with more heart and zeal and fire?” - The Host (2013)

Your body needs to be held and to hold, to be touched and to touch. None of these needs is to be despised, denied, or repressed.

I will unbutton your anger
until i reach its softness
and make love to each flaming inch

I will kiss your oceans on a full, throbbing moon,
dig my toes into the sand and
try not to be blown away by the high tide
in your lungs,
I will stay.

I will pull you back before your footsteps
turn to footprints and
I will flutter aplogies into your collarbone
until the thrashing in your chest subsides.

I will sing you lullabies
and try to understand the screams
echoing down the corridors in your mind.

But I will not be the floor you walk on when you walk away
I will not apologies for wounds you slashed into my skin
When the salt water from my eyes trickles to your shores
I will fight everything about you that tells me I am small.

I love you.
And as that love grows
do not be fooled into thinking I have plucked it
from the orchards of love I am blossoming for myself

When you spit in my ocean and sail away
I will not ask for you back
You are welcome in my arms and in my heart
But I am not your welcome mat.

Beautiful. Simply, truly, beautiful.

Literally me every night after the break up….
