To Love

by Naima

To love.....

like beauty
like adrenaline and excitement
like hope
like closeness and kindness
and joy
and laughter 

like peace
like rainfall in the summertime
at night
like trust and security
like a bedtime story
and satisfying

like fear
like silence
like sickness and pain
like heat from a battle
and injustice
and refuge and sanctuary

like desperation
like humiliation
like insecurity and sadness
like splinters and thorns
and knives and persecution
and hurt
and pain
