  7. "

    Let me tell you a
    secret about when
    I realized I loved him

    it was sometime
    after midnight and
    we had shed our clothes
    and walls like snake skin
    and I started believing
    in his eyes like I had
    found God

    I pinched the skin
    on my sides, and smiled
    with my mouth, but not
    with my eyes and I
    admitted that I was not
    completely happy with myself

    (in fact, I have never been
    completely anything, I have
    always had just one foot
    in the water, or half my heart
    out in the open)

    Shocked, he held and kissed me
    and then said (jokingly) that
    “Only my opinion matters,
    And I think you’re beautiful,
    and I love being with you.”

    And oh God, how much I do love being whole again.
