When You Told Me

When

You told me

About

The scar,

Immediately

I wanted

To kiss it

And make you

Feel

Wanted,

And desired-

And whole again.

When

You shared

Parts

Of your pain,

I wanted you

To feel

My touch

On your skin,

Erasing

Those memories,

And tracing

New ones

Across your body

And in your mind.

When

You hugged me,

I fought

To keep my hands

From wandering

And exploring

Your shape,

And saying

To you

“Thank you

For being

Here

In this

Moment-

Today.”
