Complicated afterglow

by Shining Stars   Aug 12, 2020

We’ve really made a mess for ourselves huh?
Standing in the living room with brad paisley playing;
Our daughter running around with little fits of giggles and laughter as she gets into everything.
But you and I;
Our eyes meet and my heart melts.
I’m calm and I’m happy but more than that-
I’m whole.
I’ve never felt this kind of wholeness with anyone else but you and-
The love on your beautiful blue eyes reflects what I’m feeling perfectly.
No words needed.
You’d grabbed me by the back of my shorts to pull me back to you and I-
I try not to trip over my own two feet as I laugh hysterically because we both heard a seam rip.
This is what we’ve been working for;
And I need you as much as I need air to live.
You are the best thing that’s ever come into my life;
Even if it hasn’t always felt like it.
And this afterglow?
It’s complicated.
But my God;
So so worth it.
