love (one)

i need to love deeply

the way that i used to when

i didn’t have an object for my love

and i had time to feel

how simultaneously heartbreaking and lovely it was, to love

 

i need to love, the way i used to when

winds whipped my hair around my face and blew the staleness out of my soul

when i went walking near the lake

just because i could

just because i loved to
