All he wanted was to be hugged
Despite the worry in your eyes,
All he wanted was to be told “We’ll get through this”
Despite the doubt in your heart
All he needed was to hear “It’s going to be okay”
Despite the shakiness in your voice
All he needed was for you to cry with him
Despite how painful it is to cry
All he needed was to get lost in your arms
Despite his arms no longer being your safe space
All he needed was for you to cheer for him
Despite you not being his fan.
