Deep Love

a Valentine’s Day Poem by Raquel Swann


On this special day

when hearts bleed

through shattered thoughts

and broken dreams

I promise this to you

I will love you

for who you are


without question

without motive

without judgment

Your life is in my hands

and I shall gift upon you

the happiness you deserve

You matter, your desires matter

for all those that cannot see

let them be blind and

cast aside, as I

comfort you

in this your


of need.

The smile of a new

day begins

until this contagion

settles in your body

infecting you

with glory.

Continue to look

into the mirror

and repeat this

until you

belieive it.
