In so many words

Love smothered
with the tools given
to express it
old language and new
poetry of hashtags captions
icons clicks
flat hearts
sent off into the universe
a one-way street
and this too in words

I step outside
to breathe the fresh air
and look at nothing
and everything
to walk between the sea and sky
where my feet find sand
I walk on it
and struggle for vast distances
'til the wind
brings tears to my eyes
simply to be able
to say
to the sea and sky
I love you.
