You text me early in the morning to respond to my late text about the pirate, I have discovered his flaw I tell you, with a smile in my heart. I knew there had to be one. Your joking response is that is it, the romance is over. I confess the truth and you tell me not to allow anyone to have power over me, I have seen the results of such mistakes already. I see the truth of the words and I thank you. Thank you for reminding me to keep my head. It is what you say next that causes salt water laden dark green splotches on my pale green sheets. I immediately lock your words into my cell phone so I won’t lose the words. “Your heart is yours and is big and beautiful and whole and great and deep and brilliant and needs no man to complete nor mend it.” I respond to you my love, my darling, my friend: “If you ever wonder in the cynical moments why I am a “true” friend out of all those people, you should stand in front of a mirror and see what you have been to me. I love you. ” I honor you always. Today, I will wear my wonder twin necklace and the form I will take is that of a strong woman who has you as a friend.
