the power of hot chocolate

"Do you want some hot chocolate?" he whispers to my forehead
and i smile a smile that comes from my core
he knows the answer
"water or milk?"
"I don't care," i throw my arms around him, "no, milk!"
he pulls me from that hole i throw myself down into when i am feeling everything like the infuriating pricks of needles on flesh and yet it takes me three days to name what the hell is going on
i wish i had a name for him that encompassed it all
but for now, "handsome" and "bruiser" will do
i wish there was a thank you that meant a thousand of them,
but for now, the old fashioned one remains.
to handsome, a thousand of them.
