"But at least you know,"

you said while I lay against you, fingers and legs and bodies entwined

"that we'll always be there for each other."

i continued breathing, nodding at every word

"I'm here for you,"

kissing your neck, your chin, your cheek

"and you're there for me."

kiss your lips.

"No matter what happens," I agreed.

[ I believe you. Even if you didn't really mean it, I believe in you.]
