ive never felt someone look at me like I mattered
in my whole entire life, all i’ve been is another chess piece,
another body to keep them warm.
but you look at me with eyes so big that i find myself wanting to drown in them
and you speak to me with words that pierce through my thick shell and I don’t know
how I let this happen but I don’t care anymore,
I don’t care anymore.
my life is continually better with you
and I know what’s at stake here,
but laying here bare, with all of my fears
embedded laying on my shallow skin
feels more real
than anything that I have ever done.
I don’t know where we’re going,
or what we’ll become,
my life is better with you.
