I made you laugh

And I think for the first time you saw me

Not my body and the curves that intoxicate

But me.

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.
