what are we to each other?

what are we to each other?

maybe you are saturn
and i’m your ring
all my pieces caught in your gravity

maybe you’re the ocean
and i’m your sand
intimately connected no matter the tide

maybe i’m a firefly
and you’re my light
signaling our love to anyone who’s looking

or maybe i’m a man
and you’re my woman
not a possession but a partner
not a helper but an equal
not separate but together

what are we to each other?
