where do you start after a year?
a year where i've tried to soak up every smile, belly laugh, and cuddle, given all of myself to her, and let the words pile up...and then wash away - almost unnoticed.

they taught us relativity, gravity, and energy
explained photosynthesis and chemical reactions
told us where we came from and how we continue to exist
they can't describe in textbooks that exact moment when the air cracks
and your lips meet my skin,
the thousand reactions that happen
until they think they've figured it out
they'll fill blackboards with their findings
but all they will have is chalky, dusty fingers
and i'll still have you

in the end, it wasn't a big, triumphant battle where i stood over your carcass and declared victory. it was a gentle wind that came in the middle of the night and brought spring when we all least expected it.
(not to say there's still an occassional gust of winter.)
