Newly out football player Ryan Russell wrote a sweet poem for his boyfriend.

In 2015, Russell was a fifth round pick for the Dallas Cowboys. In 2016 and 2017, he signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After taking a season off due to an injury, he’s currently trying to get back into the NFL, as his authentic self.

He came out last week in an ESPN column as bisexual, and he immediately posted a picture with his boyfriend, dancer Corey O’Brien.

And he’s not hiding his love. He posted a romantic poem he wrote for O’Brien to Instagram. He tagged O’Brien at the end to make sure everyone knew who it’s for.

I need to write more when I’m in love.

I need to stop holding your hand on these long Malibu walks

And write more.

I need to stop staring deeply into your eyes across the dinner table

And write more.

I need to stop watching you dance through the night

And write more.

I need to take a longer break between kisses,

Pull out my journal

And write more.

I need to stop thinking about how I’m going to make you mine.

And write more.

I need to stop planning our future together

And write more.

I need to stop imagining you holding our son

And write more.

I need to stop smiling at the thought of us

Old and gray, hand in hand,

And write more.

I need to stop holding your hand on these long Malibu walks  And write more.  I need to stop staring deeply into your eyes across the dinner table  And write more. I need to stop watching you dance through the night And write more. I need to take a longer break between kisses,  Pull out my journal  And write more.  I need to stop thinking about how I’m going to make you mine. And write more.  I need to stop planning our future together And write more. I need to stop imagining you holding our son And write more.  I need to stop smiling at the thought of us Old and gray, hand in hand,  And write more. 🖊R.K. Russell 📸 @corey_obrien
