The Wonders of You

looking at you
your wonders and powers
exist outside of me
and my puny realizations
you have been battling penis driven
villainies your entire life
a fearsome warrior in a
night gown
in a skirt and heels
and in leggings and flats
and for my part I don’t deserve you
but yet you believed in me
before I believed in myself
and on one trembling knee
I am humbled by your love
and warm hand of
strength and compassion
looking into your eyes
the electrifying chills of inspiration
race up and down my spine
you are the savior of my hope
and belief in all things beautiful
yes just like me
the world doesn’t deserve you
and yes just like me
it will always
desperately need you
