Elle Jai

If I seduced you,
it was many moons ago,
with the laughter of a child
and the longing of an adolescent.

But those are still within us.

If I loved you,
it was today and long ago,
and always;
as changing as the tides,
and yet as constant.

Tides have their pull, on any shore.

If I treasure you still,
it is for your heart;
the one heart strong enough
to force me to the truth,
and to face it with me.

Truth is breathed easily between us.

Is this love or is this friendship?
Yes, and with gratitude, yes.
Ohhh yes!
