You are well within your rights to stand up, interrupt everyone around you and say “This is not who I am. This is not what I want. I’m sorry, but you’ve mistaken me for somebody else.
I always lie awake late at night by myself but lying awake next to my sleeping partner is a different experience. I’ve never seen such raw vulnerable beauty. I can’t help but to wonder what she’s dreaming about. She makes my insomnia bearable.
I watch as you twitch in your sleep.
What goes through your unconscious mind?
Trust me you are safe within my arms.
The fears you silently face are no feat for me.
If I could I’d take your pain upon myself, my being damaged.
I do not mind that risk.
I’ve caused worse damage to myself without purpose.
This purpose I have now, I would gladly die for.
You are my home.
When people ask where I come from, what do I call home, I will pull your photo out and tell them, “I never belonged anywhere before her.”
He’ll say, “now is that so?”
“mister I would die for her.”
The soldiers die for their country everyday, for ungrateful people, but I can promise my death would not be taken for granted.
Her look is enough to wake me from an opiate slumber.
Her touch could pull the poison from my veins.
Her kiss could heal my track marks.
Her voice could silence the menacing echoes.
Her existence makes my life worth while, but only if she’s happy.
Her smile regulates my fragile heart.
Happy looks good on her, I’d wish for nothing more.
I think of beauty.
I see beauty in every little thing she does.
She doesn’t think so, but that’s okay she will see what I see one day even if I have to cover her body with my poems.

My girlfriend is beautiful you guys
The original post only has US helplines. I've added UK helplines underneath. It would be great if people could add numbers from everywhere in the world.
