motherly


i never wanted to care for someone
so badly ever in my 23 years of life 
loving you until you were satisfied 
making sure you ate 
telling you to sleep when you forgot 
you were still human
i slept better 
knowing your belly was full,
knowing you’ve slept your 8 hours,
knowing that i gave you every piece of me
for some reason every womanly trait 
that i’ve seen in my mother, 
but constantly ignored in myself 
was brought to the surface
when i started to love you 
never before has this happened to me 
never before has a lover made me so 

motherly
