there is a certain Ease in loving you

there is a certain ease in loving you

not too far removed from
the way lichens love a cold, damp stone, or

the way the shore’s desire is never
fully satisfied by the ocean’s tongue, or

the way the eyes of any stranger
can still radiate familiarity once contact is made.

it is effortless to be in your arms.
your kisses are as natural as breath.

just as i remember to breathe in my sleep
so it is, my love for you – involuntary.

loving you is what i was born to do –
being with you is the enigma, my darling.

  1. Oh, southernmusings, I hate to snoop, but you don’t know Leonard Cohen? I agree with cindy and it’s a very good thing. Check out the album “Songs of Love and Hate,” or any of his books of poetry.
