You see *me*. You know my heart, what sustains its beat. What my mind occupies. What satisfies my soul. Before you, the word "partner" was a concept that eluded me just as much as I clung to it, exhausting myself to get others to see. No one has ever matched my intensity.. until you. I do things differently, I see things differently. I complicate everything and you've taught me to celebrate my complexities— to, just be. Flaws and anxieties and awkwardness and all. You listen to my ideas, no matter how isolated and strange they may sound. You encourage my creativity and are nothing less than supportive, genuinely. Even when I missed because my creative impulses got the best of me. You've allowed me to feel empowered by my mistakes and not let them discourage me. You show me strength when my grief consumes me. You taught me the necessity for space in becoming the best individuals we can be. Paths aligned, there's no one else I'd rather share this journey with. All that you are, is beautiful. I love you.
