This, love

I love you more from far away
Distant enough not to absorb you
Knowing if it is my pain
or just proximity to a wound
Not steering my dreams
around your silence

I love you more close up
Near enough to never lose you
Where my gills breathe
your salted losses
My wings revere
your laughter

I love you most just here
Between this moment’s
crest and trough
Nourishing our oceanity
Here we are
always enough
