because I love you

I know I love you

because when I think

of you my heart feels full,

a pool choked with water hyacinth,

Thirsty roots reaching deep

into beds of  longing

overflowing walls of  need

where I am so afraid to fall .

Because I love you I forfeit my privilege

drown in you  as though you 
are liquid.

 

 

Vincent Van Gogh
