Pickles

I want to take care of you

and make you discover

the other side of life

you’ve never felt comfortable with

I promise you to do it

with the utmost gentleness and tenderness

make you try what you dislike

what you are afraid of

while caressing your cheeks

and kissing your lips

and holding your hands

in me, you will never find judgement

only the deepest love

and this eagerness to listen

to each of your words and each of your silences

and understand them all

in awe before the beauty

of the world dwelling inside of you

around you
