Because Of

I loved you not in spite of but because of
How can I explain?
I found the twists of your brain to be beautiful things —
Full of life and eager
To find someone worth explaining to
Well I wanted to be that for you, someone to call home
Where you could unpack and find
A reason to stay
I wanted you to say
The things that wouldn’t fit
Between the lines that people held you in —
Borders thin and superficial
I wanted you to know I’d miss you
If you let go of any part of you
The darker parts, the black or blue
I wanted you to know my love
Was not in spite of but because.
