Love Is

Shell Vera: Poetry & Fiction

What Does Love Look Like?

Love is giving of myself until I can’t give anymore yet not losing myself within you.

It is surrendering my all to you, even when you haven’t given anything to me; yet, limiting how much I give out to ensure I am not enabling you in bad habits.

It’s picking you up off the floor when you overdose. Holding your hand as you recover. Checking in on you for the months to come.

It’s giving you space yet not letting you go when you need me to hold on.

It’s allowing you grow and shine, ensuring the sun is always shining on you, and watering you when the rain stops coming.

It is laughing with you when you need a smile, crying with you when you need to release, and walking with you in silence when you just need someone to be there…without being there.
