The concern is obvious,
New love runs deeply.
Our connection is natural,
Allowing my heart to fall freely.
I was forced to build walls, keep myself guarded
Learned from the pain, there’ll be no more hurting me harder
I carry that hurt, it’s tattooed in my mind
No more bandaids or temporary time-lines.
You honor your promises,
You make me feel safe
For once in my life,
I can open my gates.
Open the gates, let the bandaids fall
This one feels real, you assure me in our calls
Not calls fueled by jealousy or infidelity, but calls out of love
You’re picking up my pieces,
I can finally say I’ve won.
The words you use are sung gently
I was accustomed to rage
There’s nothing telling me to run,
This time it’s safe to stay.
I trust you wholeheartedly
You won’t let me down
My hurt and the scars are now being drowned out
What’s tattooed in my mind no longer consumes me
Because of you, my heart isn’t mandated under lock and key← Back to portfolio
