  • There's no need to fear me
    Darling, I love you as you are when you're alone
    I'll never try to change you
    As if I could, and if I were to, what's the part that I'd miss most?
    When you're smiling and astride me
    I can hardly believe I've found you and I'm terrified by that

    I've got nothing to hide from you
    Kissing my brother in my dreams or finding God knows in my jeans
    You see me as I am, it's true
    Aimless, fake drifter, and the horny man child mama's boy to boot
    That's how you live free
    Truly see and be seen Writer/s: Joshua Michael Tillman
