to the woman who loves him next

he takes his coffee black
and likes his desserts
sometimes he needs to get away
and wander in the mountains
(he likes the mountains)
and sometimes he needs your arms
to hold him tight
you’ll learn to know the difference
he likes the tease
of soft kisses before you devour him
he likes the feel of soft clothing
if you have it
he’s good with his hands
in more ways than one
if you let go
he will catch you
he likes fancy pens
and will journal about his day
his hugs will make all of your problems
but make sure that you
make him feel appreciated
and loved
listen to him
when he talks
he has so much to share
and every fucking day
kiss him like
he is your oxygen
