the darkness builds around me
the silence presses me down
though I've screamed
I've never been able to make a sound
slow so I do not notice
A light steadily builds
A shadow stretches across me
The silence is now filled
With the gentle smile
that you have always shown
only to me
You stretch out your hand
and you save me
From my own eternal darkness
the one I hide inside
So many people around me
but you were the only one that always found me
every time that I've cried
Are you still the only one that loves me?
Despite the pain and destruction
that I have always wrought
and left in my wake?
This time will I only dream of you?
And all the mistakes that I have made?
I tell myself I'm fine
every time you walk out that door
But every time you walk back in
It feels as though my heart has finally started
to beat again
Is this just a broken circle?
Doomed to always repeat?
Or are you the one that's meant for me?
The true love
that I refuse to see?
Are you the one who can heal me?
and the pick up the pieces inside?
Will you piece me back together
with the broken parts
I'm always trying to hide?
It's as though you're the only one
who really sees me
Wouldn't you agree?
So please just hold me close
And let the tears fall
How could I not know?
With the way our darkness' match?
So this time
let us light the way in the dark together
With your hand in mine
It feels like an intervention from the divine
