I made you laugh
And I think for the first time you saw me
Not my body and the curves that intoxicate
I saw the realization in your gaze:
I’m a human with a heart
A girl who would love you through your darkest days
A friend, a lover, your fighter
A light at the end of the tunnel.
But I don’t need your solace.
I don’t need your salvation.
I don’t need your sanctuary.
Everything I needed I found in your realization.
I found my solace
I found my salvation
I found my sanctuary
In the epiphany of knowing you’d never call me yours
because you will only understand me
as deeply as you understand yourself.
