Love Your Depression and Your Double Chin

*From a prompted writing exercise at my Monday night writers' group, A Cup of Words

Prompt:  I love your depression and I love your double chin:

---------- 

of all the eyes

in the world

I am comfortable when

yours rest on me

 

see me as I am

naked, unashamed

you know me

you’ve been learning me

more than half my life.

 

and still,

you love me

accept me

you see me

 

my double chin

my silly jokes

morning grouchiness

goofy sense of humor

 

you find me

when I’m hiding

in my book

in my writing

wake me gently

from my sleep

 

you see my mess

and don’t complain

don’t try to change

recognize my passion

love me for it

believe in me

 

you know my weakness

my depression

my insecurity

you wrap yourself

around me

and I am safe, loved

 

you see me

even my darkness

even my selfishness

 

you have been hurt

wounded by my words

my actions

yet you forgive

you love

you accept me

as I am

 

I don’t understand

but I am grateful

for this gift

only you could give

 

you

know

me

love

me
