A Safe Place

In a safe place

I am wanted,

(me, all the edges

and the angles

and the hidden parts

that are me.)

And no one says,

"you just won't do.

You'll never be

the things I want,

you never will."

No one says that

in a safe place.

And no one comes

with sudden anger

or "what-am-i-going-to-do-with-you?'

look.

In hopeless eyes,

not in a safe place.

For there,

if I reach my hand out only a little,

if I touch someone,

then someone touches back

as gently,

as softly,

and no one breaks apart our reaching,

and no one tears apart our silence

in the safe place

we made

together.
