True King

I am in love with
a man who is intelligent,
funny,
hard working,
in love with his
children & his โ€œadoptedโ€
daughter,
will defend them with
life and limb.
Who plays music
and sings beautifully.
Who runs teams of
people on the right
side of the law.
Who loves his
family & spends
time with them.
Who constantly
learns and reads.
Who loves Harry Potter,
Norah Jones &
Anne McCaffrey like me.
Who is honestly
divorced from his
former wife.
Whom I have
spent time
with professionally
for over ten years.
Whom I have
spent time with
one on one
when we were
both single legally.
No we havenโ€™t kissed
as we were both
more honorable than
that & were just
figuring us out
when things went awry.
I am sorry if all
of you have
somehow gotten
the wrong impressionโ€ฆ
Not sure who filled
your heads with such
vitriol.
Understand that I am
hurt on his behalf.
And I am hurt on my
own that anyone
believes I would love
or knowingly contemplate
marrying a man any less
than this true king who
would never willingly
claim this title.
I am hurtโ€ฆ for us.
