She said curled against me, But you are not small, Sometimes I wish you were small, I know your head is floating off your shoulders and that We didn’t get to choose who, I’m here for the sunshine, love "My heart’s not the strongest, I want to make my way inside your chest, Loving you is not a matter of wading in the shallow end,
Her voice tip-toeing the edge of a cliff,
“I feel so small.”
You are the entire universe.
Your body is the new bloom wrung from
The soil that was lain from the ashes of bursting stars,
You are not small,
Even if you think you are.
So that it would be easier for my hands,
To scour over every inch of you
But I don’t mind if my body goes limp
I will never get tired of touching you.
Your heart is so heavy that you are sinking beneath the floorboards.
It is okay to feel blank,
It is okay to feel anything you need to feel,
And even though I am a poet, not a painter,
I will try so hard to turn
A blank you into something beautiful
(Just in case you didn’t know,
You are already something so beautiful.)
But you know what?
I don’t care about the technicals,
About the conventional,
And I know you don’t either.
And oh god do you shine so bright.
But I am also here for the storms,
For the rain,
For every tear drop that streaks your cheek’s windowpane.
No matter how much
It hurts me to see you hurt,
I will take my hands,
My shaking hands,
Wipe every single one of them away.
But it is all yours”
She says into the empty space of her room.
Let your heart rest I will pump all your blood for you,
I will prop you up on my shoulders
I will be your human crutch,
I will walk you across the Atlantic until the saltwater fills my lungs
Or my own two legs give up
Headfirst I will dive right in.
This is not a question of how long I can float,
This is sink or swim.
She said curled against me,
But you are not small,
Sometimes I wish you were small,
I know your head is floating off your shoulders and that
We didn’t get to choose who,
I’m here for the sunshine, love
"My heart’s not the strongest,
I want to make my way inside your chest,
Loving you is not a matter of wading in the shallow end,

look at the stars, look how they shine for you
