An Honest Explanation

It is not by choice that I obtain 
elation from 
your memory, nor is it by will that I 
crave the 
you of our past. If truth be my 
means of 
expression, then at best, the excuse 
for my 
affection is equated with complexities 
of 
conscious and convolutions of a soul, 
Or is lost within the depth of the 
meaning of life.

To confess such devotion, over the 
years, 
became an act of attempting to 
breathe,
yet to offer reason for why a heart 
loves
is to elucidate ineffable emotion.
Though the question deftly wields 
validity,
The answer...is the meaning of a 
dream.

Yet, I render this humble 
explanation:

"The reason my heart longs for 
yours
is the same my mind yearns for 
diction.
In it, I discovered something deeper 
than 
breaths. Within diction, I found 
meaning,
And within your existence...I found 
faith."

    Wow, I really like your style, disjointed and yet cohesive. You have a unique way of expressing yourself.
