Love brightens my life.
I used to think

Darkness was my friend.

Because it would

Hide the scars.

The scars

On my heart,

The scars

On my soul.

The darkness was my friend.

But I could not see

All the damage

I was doing to me.

All the anger,

All the pain.

Nothing but clouds,

Nothing but rain.

It would cut even deeper,

Cause even more pain.

So I built a wall

Strong and tall.

To keep everything out,

And protect from all.

But one day

The sun came out

And broke through the wall.

My eyes are clear,

I stand tall.

The day you said,

“I love you,”

That day

The darkness died.
