Presents

After a while you learn

the subtle difference

Between holding a hand

and chaining a soul,

And you learn that love

doesn’t mean leaning,

And company doesn’t mean security.

And you begin to learn

that kisses aren’t contracts

and presents aren’t promises,

And you begin to accept your defeats

with your head up and your eyes open.

~Jorge Luis Borges~
