to know you

Do you feel safe around me?

Do I make you believe you're truly free?

I'm not after one thing

I'm not like the others that come before me

I truly want to know you

I spend time with you to have a deeper connection

Last night was something of a date

But in that moment I saw how you truly see me

Perhaps this won't lead anywhere

But I'm okay with that

Being your friend brings me joy, and I can live with that

The benefit of knowing you is happiness

You open up to me, but it takes all my energy to get to that point

I will never put you in a position which you feel unsafe

I will never make you feel uncomfortable

I'm not like the others before me

I just truly want to know you.
