You have 6 tattoos.
Full lips. Good, strong hands.
You have 7 freckles on your back,
they map out the big dipper.
You have a scar on your left arm
you carved in high school.
The first time you pulled off your t shirt
I traced the line with my fingers and fell in love
with your strength.
You are a hero
for living from that moment
to this one. You never need to apologize
for how you chose to survive
Your body is a map I know every inch of
and if anyone else
were to kiss me, all they would taste
is your name.
I have no problem letting you be miles away for the time being. But you need to understand that I’m your home when you come back. You’re it for me. I want you for all my life. I can’t wait until the day I can run into your arms and say welcome home.
It’s me and you, kid.
x’s and o’s
It’s hard to resist a bad boy who’s a good man.
We only have one life to live and I want to spend every minute of mine as close to you as possible.
