he will sometimes love you wrong.
that’s okay. teach him the ways
that you love. like candle wax
working to sustain the flame.

put your guns away
sweetheart
because he knows
all your triggers
and how you ache
to pull them.

he tells you to stop
preparing for battle
every time you drive
around a blind turn

the road will still be there
like before. go lightly
and you’ll see.
