I really want to slow down with you
I want to slow down to discover
who I am with you, together
without repeating old patterns and yet-lived stories.
I want to be with you
holding every piece of me
and every piece of you
I need to slow down with you
to feel in every moment what’s true.
And what is true is sometimes uncomfortable, sad and ugly.
Being with you, parts of me that were hidden in the dark
suddenly come out in the light.
They come in the light with big, questioning eyes:
“Can I also be loved by you, and by me?”
let’s slow down
so that we can stay aware of the love that’s between us always
when things get edgy and tend to
tsunami us away
