#30daysofpride: day 8: Who is your greatest supporter?
This might be the easiest question to answer so far. The most supportive person in my life is my nesting partner. No one in my life time has been so lovingly supportive and radically embracing of all that I am.
Before I met him I was certain that I would be fundamentally alone for the rest of my life. I joked that I was not fit for human consumption. It seemed impossible to ever meet a person who understood all the ways I never quite fit in. This person has renewed my faith in the power of human connection. Even now, years later, I am daily thankful for his presence in my life. It is better for knowing him. Even when things get stressful or strained, the complexity of living this life, when one of us mess up…I never forget how powerfully thankful I am to have met him, to be in this life with him.
I also have two long distance lovers, queerplatonic-ish or romantic best friends who have always been as supportive as they have been able to be, and they deserve a mention as well.
As well as a network of friends across the very world who help me in every or any way they can. I try to return the support and love any time and any way I am able. I hope I’m a decent friend, even with all my different ways of being.
I am eternally thankful for each one of these spectacular people, and my life as it intertwines with theirs.
My love is unbound
rooted in stars
woven into the very fabric of our universe
my love feathers out through the galaxy
sun and strength and fingertips
I love you eternally
rebirth and death and struggle
I love you ferociously
Sweet, delicious, something
tucked between you and me
my love, my sweet
