You’re Okay

You’re Okay

you're okay
and i'll tell you that
whenever you like
so long as
that's what
you are

if you're okay
i'll tell you that
nothing more
and nothing less
cause if you're okay
and i'm okay
you won't need 
anything
more or less

i won't lie
by telling you
you're the most wonderful
thing
in the goddamned world
for giving me 
what i need
or 
i won't tell you
you're
a piece of shit
for denying 
my needs

cause i won't need much
if i'm okay
and if you don't either
then you're okay
which
as far as i can tell
may be
the only circumstance
in which
you and me
can 
love

maybe
we can love
if we're both
okay
like what we tell
the server
after a pleasurable meal
comfortable & satisfied
needing no more
lacking nothing
neither underfilled
nor sickeningly full
just wonderfully
joyously
blissfully
okay
