Show me your soul, give me all of you, including the pieces of you that feel unwanted.
Those were the words you said when you asked to be mine. My mind could not fathom that someone could be so profound and true in their intentions to a stranger.
You said you didn’t want to own me or for me to belong to you, just acknowledging your love was real was enough.
I said I was a disaster and said you’d gladly take on my hurricane, you were ready to be drenched in my flaws and part of my unlearning.
You spoke gentle and sweet, like a lullaby putting my fears to rest.
