I Need You (Poem)

I need you
But I don’t need you to save me
I don’t need you to fix me
I don’t need you to change me

I need you to be who you are
And love who I am
Be the support I need to wholly support you back

I need you to wrap your arms around me
and hold me like I’m the prize at the end of a hunger strike

I need you to need me

I need you to be my disease and my cure
My fall and my rise
My focus and my detour

I need you to make me feel secure
when you’re out on the town living the life that you deserve

I need you to love the way I love you
Savor the things I say to you
Whisper in my ear as chills run up my spine

I need you to occupy my mind
with our bodies intertwined
The love I thought I’d never find

I need your time
