This creation is in dedication to my Best Friend, who has been my strength and my salvation and my companion for 17 long years. Through all my craziness and the illogicality of my youth. Through the pain of heartbreak and the weirdness of life. Through the quintessential thicks and thins. I have had him to fall back on. He has always been there. He truly is my own personal blessing. God Bless!
It is true I am hiding
Or trying to
From the only arms that can comfort me.
The only voice that gives me reason.
The only heart I wholly trust.
It is not without regret
Or even pain
That I choose to stand away.
That I choose to let go.
That I choose me.
But all it really takes is
A single conversation
To bring me back to myself.
And it tells me so many things.
Most important being, that I do not have to be afraid.
