His body

It held me

It protected me

I listen to the heart beat

Under his chest

It soothes me

It grounds me

His body

Has never hurt me

I watched his body

Lifting fallen tree limbs

And thought

How many times

He has lifted me

I never thought I’d love a man’s body

I never thought I could

But inside THAT body

Is love

And compassion

And empathy


His body

His heart

His soul

Saved me.
