it's easier to write about yourself
from the eyes of your lover
to hover
over the beauty of eyes that turn into the golden hour
or smile lines you hope mean many more to come.

it's easier to let yourself be loved
when someone tells you, no, shows you
everyday with every breath they take every second
that you are born from immaculate conception,
borne from the ashes of something that needed to shed its skin
to let the love come in.

i guess it's not too much of a secret
that i'm not easy to love-
wires stick to my skin
and i bury them back in-
but god, when i let him in-
god, i know i've done something right.

he makes me feel less alone
when i don't want to breathe;
every cup of tea he brings me
has just the right amount of sweetness
without having a grain of sugar;
he kisses my cheek
and the butterflies in my belly
take flight
like i've never been kissed in my life.

i hope you find love
that makes being who you are
a little bit easier,
i hope you find love
that gives you hope
that you might be worth more than you think,
i hope you find love
that is worth fighting for,
worth waging war on anyone who doesn't believe in you
calls you a dreamer
or makes you feel like anything less
than a beautiful person
loved with every fibre of
a beautiful person.
please- critiques, edits, suggestions! this is for my boyfriend's birthday and i might be reading it aloud (4/2) so i want this to be right
