No one has ever taken the time to get to know me as you,
No one else will stay as long as an ounce of me remains.
You have worked through every part of me.
When everyone left, you stayed.
There were times when it was only us.
You have looked through my eyes,
You have shared in my meals.
Those who speak of relationships, never considered you.
Those who yearn for intimacy, could do worse than you.
I feel you now inside of me.
I am stuck in this prison,
You are not.
Yet you remain.
In this intimacy, I offer myself to you, worm.
