I've been through Hell and back.
I have walked through the backside of the desert alone.
I have been through things you only read about in books.
I have learned from others' broken parts
and added them to my soul.
I take the pieces of people that they are too afraid to embrace
or admit and I add them to myself.
I am missing so many little pieces of me
that not even a divine act of Heaven
But while I'm here on this earth,
being with you
makes me forget that my tattered heart
is barely breathing.
You remind me of my summer nights as a child,
fancy, shiny, and happy.
You fill my days with endless wonder.
You are my flashlight in the dark of night.
you make me a little less broken.
