Don’t Worry Baby

Brian tried to tell me,

everything will turn out alright.

I buried myself under my blankets,

because he was wrong,

and I didn’t want to face that reality just yet.

I never thought the night could last so long,

but there I was,

repeating the way you said,

“I love you too baby”,

until my head was a ventriloquist,

your voice

spouting from lips that you had conquered,

but did not yet own.

I never said it first,

but you knew,

because you watched me closer than I had anticipated you would.

I was alone,

but I was surrounded by you.

I said that you matter to me,

once,

just quiet enough that you wouldn’t hear,

but loud enough that I’d know I said it.

You said,

“I want to be the name on all your pages.”

I assumed you were crazy,

but I kissed you anyway.

I meant it.

Maybe,

everything will turn out alright.
