Safe Space

I wanna fall asleep with my face nestled into the back of your neck

Like the space between your shoulder and head was carved out for me

I wanna wake up next to you and say “good morning” to every inch of your body

Like I’m paying homage to the melanin passed down from your ancestors

I wanna stare into your eyes and wonder what it’s like in your mind

Like watching a movie for the first time, not wanting it to end

I wanna silhouette you with my love and protection

Like a safe space where you are free to exist exactly as you choose.
