LISTEN TO ME READ IT RIGHT HERE. (Recommended.)
baby, i will stay with you.
in the places of your horrible forgetting.
on the nights when the only light in your being is an inhalation of intoxication.
on the days when you’re spinning, frantic about losing what’s absolutely impossible to lose…
i will choose you.
when you feel fat.
when you feel ugly.
when you feel incapable.
when you feel unworthy of that which you were born from—
an unbreakable cord of light-filled, goddess source, INFINITY…
i will choose you to the moon and back.
not just in words
but in actions.
i will cut cords of violation from your sensational flesh.
i will build sacred barriers of entry to your flowering preciousness.
i will feed you like a queen.
i will bathe you like baby.
i will build a nest for you that’s absolutely best for you,
because baby, you deserve the best.
and when you forget,
when you forget…
i will sing you lionel richie
until you laugh
TRULY, I’M TRULY IN LOVE WITH YOU GIRL.
i will not give up on you
or settle for your faithlessness
dressed up in fancy analysis that swears
you’ve tried all the options
baby… don’t give me that fearful excuse.
we both know you are medusa on love drugs
turning all who gaze her way
into melty puddles of healthy play.
we both know you juggle the dark and the light
like a circus mistress
with psychic sight.
we both know your flesh and bones
are the finest vanilla, decadence, full-grown.
baby, i will stay with you
when your eyes are sewed closed.
when you forget what you know.
when you buy into the lie that there’s no way to re-find your power.
i will stay with you
in your darkest hour
and i will not leave
until we find a way
your sacred fire.
here’s to staying with ourselves. forever and ever more.
