Loving Somebody Means…

In my heart there’s a chest, it’s filled with the most intimate secrets, the one’s that make up my naked soul. I’ll have you know, I’ve never let anyone look inside, not even you. And you should also know, that these secrets are all about you. About your favorite stuffed animal, and how, even now, you still keep him close on the days when the thunder within roars too loudly. About your dreams of being a princess, and not the type that waits to be saved in some bygone tower, but the type that saves herself and inspires little girls to do the same. About that night we stayed in your dad’s car till 4am talking about our measured existence, and about how with every shy word that trickled from your flustered lips, you became quietly more beautiful. Loving somebody means spilling out your soul and trusting them to gather safe the pieces. It’s an exchange you see. In my chest are the stories you entrusted to me, and in your chest are the stories, of how I came to be.
