How you remind me

Never made it as a grandson.

I couldn’t cut it as a boyfriend healing.

Tired of living like a half man.

I’m sick of trying to be someone else’s conception of appealing.


But when you step into the light, it

puts everything into perspective.


It’s not like you & the dark were well-acquainted.

Tomorrow, the planet could tilt off its axis & fall into oblivion

but the one thing that will never waver is my love for you,

shining brightly like the most reflective obsidian.


I don’t need anything else from you

aside from some piece of mind,

just for you to be who you are:

loving, gentle, selfless and kind.


That’s how you remind me

of what I could truly become.

We won’t win them all but

we can still win some.
