There’s something poetic
About what you say
And the way it’s displayed.
Questions are answered
And a tenderness is touched
I think I adore it a little too much.
It’s sweet and it’s kind,
But I love that it’s raw
So unorthodox, it breaks every law.
But I get it.
That’s why I respect it
And, for now,
I can definitely accept it.
