I will say yes to him because I love you
And because I love me
And cannot linger in wait for your return.
I may even love him
But not because he isn’t you
But because he adores me
And sees a me only he sees.
A me who exists when you cannot be with me.
A me living independent of you
Until and unless you too are independent to be with me.
He too has his other who is not me.
And it is me who is one not two.
A year from now who knows
Where any combination of three might stand
For now I am one between two
Because my choice is you.
This is one of my original poems written for the passionate and the adventurous.
