Some things cant be contained

You could be the bits of straw and me the bird that needs you to nest You could be my greatest triumph or my most challenging test You could be that one breath that i desperately need to survive You could be the only touch that my soul needs to come back alive You could be the greatest lover and best friend a girl could claim You could be the worst mistake and never even have a name You could be the one fear that prevents a caterpillar growing into her true form You could be the one weakness in an unfinished house causing it to blow away in a storm. You could be like the first kiss of the sun after the drenching rain What you can never be is a container of something not meant to contain.
