    a love that can’t
    be tested…
    is a love that can’t
    be trusted…&
    …with that in mind
    i felt inclined to tell
    you that… we are
    withstanding the tests
    of time
    beautiful-ly…

    since the beginning
    of OurStory we’ve
    faced adversity…
    in the form of ex’s
    (of both sexes)
    haters… & naysayers…

    but

    we are no longer trying
    to justify… we’re not
    pressing to find the
    reason behind the rhyme
    we just know
    it’s OurTime to shine…

    …mysun
    from the moment
    you called me yourmoon
    …i’ve been complete-ly
    in tune with the line…
    “he rules the day
    & I rule the night”
    ‘cause the divine light
    of OurLove is
    extreme-ly bright &
    ceaseless-ly unremitting…

    we are no longer questioning
    our souls sanity
    we just know
    this sweet pairing of
    Poet you/Poetess me
    is destiny… & we
    were meant to be
    here… now…honoring
    OurUnion exclusive-ly
    because… we deserve it.

    i remember when
    you told me:

    elayne, i would face every fear
    instilled inside of me
    so we can see clearly
    from afrikan mountains our future

    child of the sun,
    woman-queen of me
    ...there isn't anything i wouldn't
    do to make sure happiness
    sits playfully at your feet.


    & i still believe you…
    because i trust you &
    because… we are worth it.
