I’ve always been wrapped up in sheets
the first time you kissed me
I mean really kissed me
it was unexpected
I wasn't ready to let you see
my broken bits
as they stung my eyes
so I let them stain your shirt
unquestioning you held me
though later you admitted
your confusion and concern
convinced it was your fault
even though it was anything but
my sadness was a sunflower seed
planted in my lips by his
bursting forth with the wet of yours
you broke the heart I had
tirelessly taped back together
a thousand infected wounds
breaking though thorns
in search of greenery
and I think this
was the moment
that people speak of
when I let you love me
(it wasn't til two months later
I let myself fall for you)
I am carelessly gentle
spending every saving
on gossamer and wool
I felt naked
a bulb unblooming
plucked from the bosom of my bed
made to spread
in hope of strengthening
the shine of my eyes
I do not think you were sent here
to save me I think
you did that
Thank you my writing friends
