He humbles me

I can’t tell if I want to be him
or be with him

He inspires me

I wish that I had a decade to grow with him,

to explore his mind,
his soul

He embodies places in me
that I so often hide

I know him

The kindest thing I can do
is to be light,
to remain at a calculated distance,
to titrate the passion
so that we can enjoy each other
without destroying each other

I may have poured too much gin
on an empty stomach

I adore him
and and he is so far away
