I lean too much on this description,

I can’t explain straight how I love you

so instead I will paint you in the light of

minutes and falling slow and laughing through the pain,

heat and support systems and split second choices,

skies and canyons, screams and whisper breaths,

gold and metaphors and scribbles…

hope it’s enough.

This sounds like a lovely relationship to be in. I particularly like the juxtaposition of support systems and split second choices. Every relationship should have both.
