You were my solace
A breath of air
A gasp of pleasure,
More than anyone has ever given me
The idea of intimacy, security, value,
Someone who loved me
With no modifiers.
I'm sorry for the way
that I took you for granted
And chased freedom with such vigor
That I forgot the golden promises I held
All the things that you gave me
And your love, that was more
Than a good love.
God, it was the best love.
It's always the best ones that I lose.
And I never deserved to have you.
But I loved you.
And I never got the chance to say thank you.
