I need you like...


I need you like...

...cotton
a soft landing for my heart
because you wrapped mine in doilies
brand new ones
not the yucky ones
that have been stained
with god knows what

...color
a rainbow of vibrant choices
you have shown me my true self
through your own actions
I have so many cracks
and gnarly edges
I don't know how you've put up with me
for so long

...knowledge
you share things with me
even some of your secrets
I have told you my own
each one an entire story
that we digested together
and the best part is
we didn't even get indigestion

...sugar
my most cherished friend
so hard to describe
but this I do know
when I have been with you
I walk away feeling
like I need to have more

...water
a cleansing purification
you hold in your heart
my clean slate
because you very thoroughly
use more than an eraser
with all that love in your hands


To a very special friend
