you are the blanket over my heart
the fire over my belly

i never wanted to be with others
because i needed

to be reminded
that i was worth loving

only i taught myself that
but you taught me

that someone else could, too

that you could love me

you could protect me

and accept me

and i can’t ever
ever ever ever

ignore that

you keep me warm

you make me cry
in the best of ways

i never thought i could need someone

before you
