Maybe I need to remind myself,
How it felt to be with him.
I don’t want you to forget.
Maybe it would help to trace the outline
Of his face and ask yourself
What more you wanted than this.
I’ve only listened to his heart a couple times
But I’m sure it’s full of things complex and tired just like mine

Felt like melting at the same rate

Of being terrified, but safe
Of feeling wanted.
No, I know I’m wanted.
