Never compare your chapter 1 to someone else's chapter 20

Tell me why.

Even when you want to hold it back and

Lock it up for your brain to

Lather in all your nova thoughts.

My love only wants the best for you.

Eventually I will know why your smile

Withers, but please sweet dove

Hear my plead.

Your voice is all I seek. 

The author's comments:

My boyfriend and I suffer from depression. It is very hard for the two of us to say what is getting to us. We find it difficult to open up when we both know, we are in a safe place to do so. I wrote this for him so he could understand that he can talk to me. Upon finishing this piece, it became clear I wrote this for myself as well.
