I hold you closer

And closer 

And closer

As if my arms around you

Connect you to my core


The stars in your eyes are my galaxy

Their constellations connecting the dots

I haven’t yet figured out


You tell me you’re hard to love

Because of the damage

But your craters let me in

I find comfort in your phases


I’m starting to get sick 

Of my path around the sun

I lose bits and pieces of myself

Each time around


But I’m starting to find them in you
