How I Love You

You make me
want to see you,
touch your face,
hold your hands,
and kiss your lips.

You make me
want to love someone,
when all I really want
is to protect myself
because I’m so done of loving
and I’m done of getting hurt.

But you make me
want to love you,
anyway.

You make me want
to sacrifice
the security
I’ve given myself.

You make me want
to risk everything
that makes me safe.

Because when I
started loving you,
you took away
every chance
that I could get
from the happiness
of being safe.

I don’t want
to be safe
by myself.
I want
to be safe
with you.

And that is how I love you.
