Some Loves

some loves are like the sea
moving and flowing
but too shallow or deep to swim

some loves are like oxygen
vitally sustaining
yet explosively intoxicating

some loves are like skyrockets
sizzling into the heights
with a flash of sparks and cinders

some loves are like iceshapes
breath-taking patterns
slightly below room temperature

some loves are like trees
growing straight and strong
rooted far into the ground

some loves are like rainbows
majestic colors
that are never quite gotten over

some loves are you
some are me
and it doesn’t matter which is this
as long as we can be
