Heart like a grenade
Around you I’m liable to explode
There I go
Smashed into pieces
Your spirit animal should be a bulldog
But lovable and sweet.
Like hugging a brick wall wrapped in cotton
Strong. You are so strong.
Yet there is this tender soul under it all.
You let me in.
I let you in.
We are have intertwined. There will be no separating us now.
You saved my life.
There was no point before there was you.
There would be no point after you.
Your eyes burn golden in the afterglow
I love to watch them burn
Like I light you on fire from the inside out.
I wonder if my eyes burn blue at you.
I’m burning inside too.
Gear and trash
Helmets and boots
Flashlights and scanners.
You steal my damn flip flops again
Smoke and sweat smell in my car for days.
You have no idea that your worth is more than your father taught you.
You are digging your own hole of your insecurities under a blanket of his neglect and lies.
We could all drown in those lies.
You love to be obnoxious and drive me crazy.
I put up a fight.
But I really love it because you only do it cause you love my reactions to things.
You make me feel safe.
Like no one else.
We walk hand in hand together.
There is no where else I would rather be than with you.
Love has taken me to you.
