I tend to shut people out.
I like my space.

I lost my touch.
I lost love.
I lost myself.

I began to fade.

I lost ability to feel.
I refuse to love another.

In the mist of my demons.
Bare and unaware.

You stepped into my life.
Made my demons tremble.
Saving me from the dark side.

I have survived.

A big change happened.
A door open.

There she was.
my angel on the other side.
Fighting those shadows.

Always asking me

Why I care?
Why I stay?
Why I never cease?
Why I love you?

I have to admit.

you let me in.
you gave me hope.
you gave me purpose.
you gave me a family.

In loving you.
within me is Joy.
within me is peace.
within me is happiness.

so believe me
I promise you
my love is harmless

I wanted to save you
In the end

P.S. thank you for loving me the way you do
