For you, love defied all boundaries
All encapsulation
All definition
The mountain was worth the climb
The diamond worth the digging
The three little words
Let’s get them out of the way
Then we are free to pronounce them
In every breath
In every text
Such freedom of expression
Filled you with glee
As for me
Enrapture is a better word
Enveloped and contented
To run my fingers slowly around the glossy orb
That encircled me
Nestled in a brilliant warmth
That only required your presence

Sigh…

Then your baby mama disappeared
Leaving you with the heft of full-time fatherhood

Enough said
You know where this is going

Love does not defy definition
Commitment
My self-imposed internment

Some are hijacked
By the whim of their unfettered sentiments

In so doing
You drew a boundary
Clearly, unequivocally
Around
Yourself
