2P or not 2P
by Moss Bliss
We opened to each other tonight

Showed scars and both open and closed wounds
Talked about things I have been dying inside,
wanting to tell somebody
Had more fun, more intimacy
than we possibly could have had
with our clothes off.
But we can't stay here.
We didn't open wounds to watch each other bleed.
We did it to heal
so we can pay more heed to the future
than to the pain
With your help, I will heal
With my help, so will you
With that facing us, this was SO much better than sex
That I refuse to craft a metaphor.
