When we first started dating, I told you that my dad told me that communication is the most important thing in a relationship
You said, "Good communication, or just communication in general?
Because like, there's some bad communicators out there, y'know, and just 'cause they're talking doesn't mean their partners are happy."
I laughed. I think you were trying to tell me that you didn't feel like you were a good communicator
I think you were trying to give me an out
Boy, do I have some news for you
Sometimes my words fall off my tongue too abruptly
Sometimes I forget to strip the roses of their thorns
I've learned that "I don't like to be touched," and, "I'd rather spend the day alone," can hurt people's feelings if I don't wrap the sentiment in silk
I... have never had a lot of silk in my toolkit
When we first started dating I told you that I never saw my last partner more than once a week because I felt stifled
That cuddling for too long made my skin crawl
That after sex I like to spend the night alone
I was trying to give you an out
I am not a great communicator
But you just laughed. You said, "Some people need more space than others. Is it okay if I hold your hand?"
And once you had my hand in yours, you said, "Just let me know when you're not comfy, and I'll let you go, cool?"
When I was little, my mom bought a pansy plant at the hardware store and planted it outside my bedroom window
When I was little, my mom bought a pansy plant at the hardware store and planted it outside my bedroom window She said it was mine to take care of
It would die, and she would buy me another, and it would die
I pouted. "Why do they keep dying, momma?"
She said, "Only plants that get water grow. You want it to live? You better water it."
The dandelions in my yard used to get a lot more water than the pansies
I liked the puffs better than the purples
You wrap me in your arms and you kiss the top of my head and you tell me, "Just say the word if you get itchy."
Funny, how my body feels when you hold me. "I'm good."
"You'll tell me if that changes?"
You kiss me again. Your questions and check-ins are drops of water over dry soil
I do not yet know what kind of plant my love for you will be
We had brunch with my oldest, best friend and her boyfriend
And after we left she sent me a text
And after we left she sent me a text "I like him," it said. "You're acting like the you you always say you want to be."
I think that... people pick partners that reflect them
I want to be kind, and soft, and funny
I want to be kind, and soft, and funny I want to be patient, and relaxed, and unapologetically myself
I want to be kind, and soft, and funny I want to be patient, and relaxed, and unapologetically myself And that is what you are
And suddenly, that is what I become
The best version of me so far because you have taught me how
Communication is key
Water the plants you want to grow
The best pieces of advice from my childhood
I hope our love is like dandelions
Easy to spread, hard to get rid of, bright and puffy and soft
Something to make wishes on
"You're always there to support me"
Of course I am
Maybe words fall off my tongue too abruptly, but I'm trying to find some nice silk
I'm watering the plants
I'm wishing for dandelions
Of course I am
Of course I am
