loving just 'cause

love in a box
with a label on top.

no that's not what
it should be
as you say 
you have pride.

so be all over the place
and in their face.
like my family and I can be.
until they see
love is love, no matter.

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


i place my hand on his 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.
just 'cause

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