Halves

I have tried to love in halves.
I have learned to exist both in your arms, and underwater, at once.
I have crate trained this heart to wait patiently until you come home.
In this discipline, I become content.

I have tried to love in halves.
I have divided my life by the meeting of you.
I have stifled passion to keep a soft foot.
In this discipline, I become meek.

I have tried to love in halves.
I have denied my own heights; lost pride in all talents.
I have fought urges. in thighs. like thunderstorms.
All to not overwhelm you.
In this discipline, I become silent.
Virgo in my relationship house.
