The magnitude of a relationship,
should not be measured in decibels.
It should be measured in counts.
In counts of moments,
overcome and achieved.
In counts of hearts,
warmed and stretched thin.
In counts of patience,
consumed over the years.
Gratitude in a relationship is explored
when the faithful stay rooted.
The faithful bundle their hearts together,
to protect from the bitter, cold world.
The faithfully committed use their time
to cover and completely envelop
the hearts of their lovers.
A magician, of time and hearts,
devours the abundance
gifted in a sweet breath,
a loving kiss.
No hollow words,
no hollow hearts.
The devouring of affection,
ends with a caress.
