Oh, Maple! This is beyond poetic and there's so much pain, but also growth, in this. From the safety of being together in nature, to loving from a distance and how time moves us along as well... and realizing the importance and beauty of sharing your truth, that it cannot be silenced.... some heart-breaking lines but as always, you have wisdom in this, and I'm always touched by your vulnerability in these verses.
Only thing, I believe "burring" in the second to last line should be "burying"
LOVE THIS AND YOU!
