Bellybutton phobia

I can't believe you have a phobia of bellybuttons
Of all the harmful and scary things in the world,
You're scared of bellybuttons.

But that's what I love about you-
You're pleasant
In a world full of unpleasantries;
You'd rather be scared
Of a slightly sunken cleft in my skin
Than the millions of things that can go wrong in a day

We'd be better off in a world with a million yous-
A million-and-one yous with bellybutton phobias
