Without Rhyme Nor Reason

Standard

I fell in love

With you,

A man I had never met.

Dark and dangerous,

Full of secrets–

Countless things that pulled me close.

You loved me,

A younger girl,

With a mind as broken

As her heart.

I fell in love–

How broken I was!

How fearful, how lonely.

How could you be

So patient with me?

 

I

Pulled away,

Couldn’t fight it–

But couldn’t stay.

I fled,

Eyes closed shut

And a mind

Unwilling

To admit it.

 

I ran away,

Wishing you

Would chase me–

But instead, you

Waited.

 

You knew

I would come back.

 

You stayed there, waiting.

You watched me

Weep, and grow.

You shaped me into

A healthier love

For you.

You let me grow,

Giving me a place

Where I

Can be safe.

 

Without rhyme, nor reason–

You stayed

With me.
