loving just 'cause

love in a box
with a label on top

be all over the place
and in their face
like my family and I can be
until they see
you are no different from me

i walk to town
arm in his arm
we feed each other
bites from our plates
just 'cause


i place my hand on your thigh
under the table, while sipping on whatever
and we kiss the other
just 'cause

we may breakup or we may cohabit
we marry if that is what we want
we may become parents
birth or adoptive
just 'cause

your love
is as foolish or as soulful as mine
with all of it's overlapping, convoluted facets.

soon you should be able to say
i don't fit
in a box
with a label on top.
just 'cause
