You let me say things I wouldn't to anybody else-
Sometimes delightful nonsense and childlike banter,
Sometimes tales of woe and rage, as catharsis,
And mostly stories that would bore any other mortal;
You make me do things I wouldn't if it weren't for you-
Saying sweet-nothings without feeling awkward,
Being vulnerable, being silly, being sappy,
Doing the very opposite of what I have been known to be like so far.
You make me wonder if it's still the same 'me',
Or being with you has made me,
What I was always afraid to be.
Or simply perhaps, you just allow me to be myself.
