The word Valid comes from the Latin,
(As so many words do),
I want what I am feeling
To be valid,
But I do not want to
Is not so simple as
It may be Old Germanic
(With a bit of Latin thrown
in too, just for good measure).
It means many things:
But it is also a bedfellow to the word
I desire to pour myself
Into another human being.
To fill up all their dark spaces with
Light and understanding.
To feel pleasure in their company
And in the fact that they are near,
And always will be.
But I do not wish to be left alone,
And I do not wish to be strong.
I think of you easily
It is such a relief
Not to care anymore
Not to have that painful catch
