because of you

i now make my morning coffee
with a french press
because the way you kiss my inner thigh
taught me
that the best things
are worth waiting for
i hold my head up
when i walk into a room
because even when i am
on my knees
you like for me  to
look you in the eyes
and thanks to the way
you hold my face
when i try to look away
as you speak of my beauty
i am comfortable
in my own skin
