Today’s prompt is “______ to Love.” I could tell you what inspired it, but I think today, I’ll let the poem speak for itself.
Staircase to Love
As I climb the stairs, heading up to our room,
I’m huffing and puffing;
I wish I had taken the elevator.
But I know, that this is better, healthier.
My heart races, and my quads burn.
Sometimes I think, “This is no fun.”
But in the end, I am better because of it.
My heart is healthy and full
When I reach our space and
Rest with you.
