Instead of ‘I love you’

Siam Reap, Cambodia, 2014.

Siam Reap, Cambodia, 2014.

 

I want to find a home
for all the poems within you
that paper cannot hold;
I want to release to wind
all the songs within you
that cannot find a voice;
I want to create fireworks
from every colour within you
that cannot find its canvas;

I will relentlessly pursue
every single part of you
from the very first day,
so we will one day meet
all the possible people
who may otherwise
remain invisible
because to me,
you are a multitude

and I know no other way
to express what others mean
when they say ‘I love you’.
