I Just Did

This is ridiculous

What is ridiculous?

This poetry thing.

The one you told me about?

Yeah. That one.

What's wrong with it?

It just isn't enough.

What isn't enough?

The whole thing.

What do you mean?

A poem will never be enough to fully explain everything you've done for me.

I haven't done that much. You were pretty great to begin with ;)

No, you don't get it. 

Why not?

How am I supposed to tell them that you helped me believe in myself?

That you gave me the strength to come out to everyone I know?

That you showed me what it felt like to be accepted?

That you taught me to be proud that I'm gay?

That I am a better person when I am with you?

That I count the seconds on the clock until I can see you when we pass each other in the halls?

It's just ridiculous. They won't get it, they just won't understand how you changed my life. You are the reason I am who I am. And I am so worried that I won't be able to show that. You are the definition of a healthy relationship. Everything I write feels stupid and wrong.

It's not stupid, it's really sweet. 

Speak from the heart and be yourself.

I just did.

This poem is about: 
My family
