Self Love

I love you.

All of your webs and tiger stripes,

All of your bruises and healed cuts.

I have never loved you more than I do now, in this moment, this very second.

I kiss you constantly, lightly, assuringly.

I need you to know that I love you.

We’ve been through a lot together, through thick and thin.

Through every heartbreak, through every loss, through every mistake,

I have been there for you and you have somehow withheld your beautiful shape, supporting me, supporting us, with this life that we share.

I have witnessed the result of all the pain, the stress, the pressure,

Yet I love you more and more every day.

You may not be a live person, but you’re keeping a person alive.

I love you.
