soup

we bickered

about

you making me chicken soup

 

at 11:30 at night

i said

it’s too late

i said

don’t worry, i’m not that sick

 

you said

no it’s not

you said

yes you are

 

what i meant was

i don’t think

i deserve

such kindness

 

but i know

if i’d said that

(if i’d realised that)

you would’ve made

chicken soup

 

and counted all the ways

you love me

in your head

 

what i mean is

i want to apologise

because

your kindness

is yours to give

 

and i

would’ve done

the same

for you

in a heartbeat too
