First time I read the words, heard the voice
smelled her skin
I knew the answer lied within.
Inside me, she just needed to bring it out
Self contained suffocation, removed with the self-doubt
writing my own ticket to hell.
Never been with anyone before
who’s made it so obvious
it was as if a switch had been flicked
it doesn’t have to be so hard….
She gave herself to me
and held my hands steady until I was certain I could hold on by myself
Because the things I needed to fear were lying on my own shelf
And all those things, and the trepidation they caused
are by the day fading away
and she smiles at me and gives me pause
as I empty out the closet, I know I have reasons to think I am something special
Worth it all, the winter that came before the fall…..
She doesn’t want to have to say it again
She wants me to know it.
