Jacob’s Love



I am so in love with you.
I have never known love like this.
wanting for what I already have.
yearning for that which I am.
So wanting to be within myself
to know myself
to be(come) myself.
that to expend the energy to give myself something, anything, a gift
Or to take the moment to impress you with words of praise
Or to take the time to pick up the dreary pen to write this love letter
Even to breathe
Pains me, as it calls my attention away
From the pure moment

Of love

So in love
That the “in” is redundant
And swims above the surface of the truth
Of this
