A lifeline is given by the most unexpected. ― Tammy-Louise Wilkins.
My life has been challenged
By someone completely different
Yet all too familiar
Within one entity
Someone just as damaged
Just as broken as me
Has opened my eyes to this destructive path
Of emotional turmoil that I’m leading myself upon
This someone dares to test me
When others wouldn’t dream to
This someone knows what I truly desire
In order to become the person I want to be
What if this someone,
Is the unpolluted oxygen I need?
To breathe life back into me
And cease how much this heart bleeds
A someone that has the power
To rejuvenate a lifeless soul
To a time when it once bared no scars
Nor wounds, when it was once whole
That someone ignites such strong emotion
From a vessel that has been trampled so many times
That someone has had me weeping on the phone
Over the tiniest of things
How can someone make me feel so safe?
From a distance, too far away for comfort
How can someone make me feel so feminine?
A feeling I’d forgotten I could even feel
Be my someone
