INNATE LOVE

Did you know that I loved you long before I knew you?

I used to feel your tentative tugs at the edges of my life, your placid attempts to somehow slip inside my heart.

But I was so transfixed by the fierce force of my own nature, that I smudged the fingerprints you placed on my heart and bit your name off the tip of my tongue.

My life became an infinite search for your phantom familiarity as I wandered like a pariah, mute to my own language, using just memory to question your name.

All I could remember was that I loved you long before I knew you…and that was enough when you finally found me.
