Darkest Corners

Just a simple poem to my lover.
Where do I begin?

How do I start?

Do I have to reveal my true self to you,

Or can I keep hiding?

The masks I wear are easy to wield

It's a second me, something you've gotten used to

I love you, I really do

So don't doubt me when I say I'll never leave you

My depression is like a snake, always constricting me,

But here you are, scaring it away

How can you do that? 

How are you able to make me smile?

There are so many things I don't understand

One of them being love

Is it truly meant to give life?

Or destroy the fragility that is the mind?

I have found you at last

The one meant for me, the one meant to keep me smiling

Here you are, striking a spark of happiness every day

The strength of my emotion is no equivalent as to the words I speak

I read you like a book when we first met,

You were so strong, proud, even having that "tough guy" feel

You were outgoing and always happy

But now I know the reasons

You are like me, happy on the outside, crying on the inside

We both have scars on our skin

We both need help from each other

We both love each other

You are my significant other, my one true outlet,

Even the jaded eternity that is of heartache cannot compare

Even in the darkest corner of my heart, you hold a place there

You have started a fire in my chest

My walls are shattering, my heart is still like glass,

How do you manage to keep them intact?

How can you keep my heart at ease?

How can you keep my mind from losing all sense of what is right?

Even though I say my music tells you more than I could with words,

It's not entirely true, compared to how my heart screams with what's on my mind

My music is a mere addition to the expression,

It doesn't always tell you everything

Let me be in my cage alone

Allow me to close myself in, terrified of what will come

Throw away the key and keep me locked inside

Let me hide behind the bars that keep me safe

Don't forget I've let you inside my walls..

Don't forget how much I trust you

Don't forget how much I love you,

And don't forget how much I care about you
