Taught Me How To Love Him Again

You remind me of my dad

Before I met you

Before I fell in love with the way

your eyes droop in the morning,

or how you hunch when you’re sad,

or how your voice changes pitch

when you’re excited

Before I understood what made my mother

and his exes and his friends and his

mother love him

I thought loving someone like my dad

was impossible

You taught me how to love him again

And more than anything

More than the way you make me feel beautiful

More than the way your hips move when

I watch you cook

More than the way your mind works

That made me love you

I don’t know if I could ever stop loving you

Even if you decide you could never love me
