The First Time You Held Me

The first time you held me
You held me like you knew me
Like you already knew me
Like you already loved me
Like entangled twins at full-term
Not yet ready to give up
The warmth of mother’s womb

The first time you held me
You held me like you meant it
Like you’ve already meant me
Like you already want me
Like your touch was a promise
That your heart made to me
And you’d already kept it
