after this long journey
I collapse
into your hands
hold me there
as I worry
if I did well
and tell me
how much it mattered
every time
I fell
by the velocity
of the impact
tell me
you needed me
to be
what I was
every time
I stood there
in the fire
for the chance
to tell you
I love you
even if
you did not
even if
even if
I never mattered
to anyone
