I felt trapped when I had only my pillow
to hear me cry and beg and scream to.
You unravel me in a gentle breeze by the sun
of my youth, to smooth away the scars
gained from a life of reckless loving.
I crease and fall and I’m weak, so small
to be smacked against life by life.
Below my crush depth – I cannot bear it, take it.
You find me, unfold me and give me your nook,
absorb my pain and take it away.
Breath into me, create me all and whole
Demystify my soul by the way you make me smile
You peel away the pain to bring your sun to
make me laugh – and I laugh because you love me.
