I saw that I would love him,
and that loving him would mean
saying yes to the self I would become
by loving him,
and no to the other selves
I would never become by not loving him.

In a real way, you’re vowing to become the person you could only become through the loving of this particular partner – and no other.
Now that’s deep.
