day three.

what we are. 

we are not you

we are not quick embraces
in parked cars,
we are looks
across rooms.

we are not fevered kisses
and fumbling hands,
bodies knowing each other
before hearts or minds
ever do

we are not outlandish promises,
we are honest omissions

we are love

not in your hard
kind of way

we are slow
and steady 
and deep
and constant

marking days on calender
and making plans
and shyly smiling
from a distance.
