“You don’t say “I’ll take care of you.”,
like all the others feel compelled to do.
The promise is written in your eyes;
in the way you speak to me and about me,
gentle hands, careful touch.
Kind words that cover me like a warm blanket.
You see, for once, I don’t feel I’m being lured into a trap,
to be caged forever.
yours will be the trap I’d gladly walk into.
With you, I desire an ‘us’
and I fiercely hope you want us too
after forever, I’m ready.
I am ready
and I choose you.”
