Let me in

by Lofallenve   Oct 20, 2011

I know these demons that haunt you,
That live inside you,
The ones that whisper,
The ones that tear at your soul,
Fill your mind with doubts,
With insecurities,
With reasons not to live.
I have lived with these demons.
Seven years.
I had no one in that time.
Not a single shoulder to lean on.
I kept pushing to survive.
My survival brought me to you.
My strength led me down the path,
Straight to you.
I can see how haunted you are by them.
I can see them through your fake smile,
I can hear them over the walls you put up,
To keep everyone out.
I do not have any magical words that I could say,
That would take all the pain away,
I wish I could take you in my arms,
And feel you breath safely,
And know that for a moment you were free.
I would kiss those tears that spill from your brown eyes,
I would kiss them away,
Whispering secrets,
Whispering everything I have wanted to say
I would not let you go.
I would tell you,
In a soft voice,
You do not have to face this alone.
Allow me in,
Allow me inside,
Let me fight these demons that cause you
To hide.
I am not afraid.
You cannot scare me away.
Did I ever tell you,
That the scars that decorate your skin,
The ones that tell your story,
Are beautiful?
They tell me that you survived.
I know you can still.
I would kiss you on your wrist,
The same place the blade had kissed.
Change the voices that scream at you.
Let me in.
Let me silence the voices that scream.
Replace them with words like these:
You are beautiful.
You are amazing.
I wish you could see yourself,
The way I see you.
I wish you could see the person,
That I fell in love with.
Please baby,
Let me in.
You do not have to face this alone.

    Long poetry absolutely overwhelms me but how odd yours doesn't...so that in itself says alot. This was so deep, again it pulled me in and refused to let me go until the very last word. Again, awesome.
