it’s what love is

I know we’re different
you don’t understand me sometimes
I don’t understand you sometimes
but I know I care for you
I know I want the best for you
I know holding your hand
makes me feel better
and I know being wrapped in your arms
is some kind of magic

a first date

we talked for hours that first night
it didn’t feel forced or awkward
I felt comfortable, at ease
I rambled about the dumbest things
unintentionally trying hard
not to linger my face too close to yours
until you finally asked outright
can I kiss you?
then your lips on my mine
our tongues entwined
it was perfection
the whole night was perfection


I see you
I feel you
I know you
you are kind

you have brought the joy
back into my life

don’t let any of them
make you feel
less than
not enough

babe, you are more
than any of them can see

I see you
I feel you
I know you
