sometimes i call you kitten but really you are a grizzly bear who only happens to adore me. i wanted to leave a mark somewhere - to make a difference - so i could say thank you for freeing me of the hollows i came from. but there were too many people to thank and i got so busy, marveling really in everyone else's brilliance - that i forgot to become someone important. i hope you will forgive me also for loving everything that is a little crooked in you. there is something about the way that light bends when we are together and i am certain this is how you've saved me.
