A Healthy Relationship

“Because I love you.”

Multiple definitions

For words so loving.


“Because I love you.”

Manipulative gestures

For words so loving.


Just because you “love”

Does not mean you aren’t afraid

Of losing control.


Just because you “love”

Does not mean I won’t escape

Your twisted word game.


Love is not word games.

Love is not cheesy poems.

Love is not filters.


Love is trusting me.

Love is loyalty to me.

Love is secureness.



Can often be overlooked

With today’s cell phones.


It is the key part;

What keeps them all together;

The elders outside.


They talk every day.

They trust each other all day.

They have what I seek.


They are what I want.

They achieved a life-long goal.

They won the gold in


A healthy relationship.
