distant in reality we may be, but this is the closest I’ve felt in all of eternity
to others we are merely faces on the screen,
divided by continents, connected by the internet.
and so it may be,
but the world around us is unaware of the work we are doing, narratives we are changing
the initial stages filled with uncertainty of whether you were taking us seriously,
i soon realised my worries were dumbfounded, we became friends and there i saw it
this boy who was unknowingly changing my life, wonderfully kind with a big heart.
undoubtedly afraid of the stares and naysayers
i wasn’t sure if you could see beneath the darkness of my surface.
trying my best to mask my insecurities,
i did my best to thread very carefully, to let you see only parts of me.
you managed to breakdown all the barriers, you found my soul and you weren’t careless.
you lift me up and you hold me down, you remind of all the good around,
my love for you is unconditional, you have my heart and i want you to keep it close.
i intend on staying with you through the highs and lows, supporting you through it all
there’s no greater privilege than being your friend, your lover and number one fan.
i am with you, on your side, rooting for you my darling,
our story might be unwritten, but our adventure awaits!
there’s nothing more gratifying than realising dreams,
with my inspiration, motivator and partner in crime.
