Our legs tangled together as we woke up with the morning sunlight soaking into our skin. I lay there, taking you in. Staying quiet, put paying attention to your body. How you move in the morning… in the sunlight. We lay quiet for a little while, listening to the morning outside the open window. The cool air blows across our skin. I roll over and you hold me close. I feel safe in your arms. I feel safe by your side. I like waking up next to you.
I want to hold your hand on a cold night, and wake up to your face on a Saturday morning. I want to travel the vast expanse of your mind and scare the evil spirits and bad thoughts away. I want to wrap my arms tight around you and never let go. I want you, in your entirety, and I want to love you endlessly.
"When you're comparing yourself to someone else, you're saying that what you have isn't good enough. That's such negative energy. We could take all of that energy— if we understood our bodies and weren't confused by them — and if we just felt like, 'I'm not worried about losing that 10 pounds that I can't seem to lose because I have a different relationship with my body. I have the best, healthiest body that I can have, [so] I don't need to compare myself.'" -Cameron Diaz
