a heartbeat. mine. quickening. pounding.
breaths. also mine. gasping. in. out. in. out. in?
a smile. yours. bright. wide. blinding.
you were the catalyst
to my rebirth.
like jonas with the apple.
when the colors of the world were revealed to him.
when i saw you.
i saw the rainbow.
when you took my hand.
i had never felt anything so right.
when you told me to follow.
i did. of course i did.
and you led me out of that tiny room
within a room. where i used to hide
in the darkness. waiting for
someone to rescue me from
my fears and doubts and
so thank you.
for teaching me what
love is. love.
