I can’t protect myself from you
Hiding inside my heart
Where I’ve no armor or boundaries
Lost in my own feelings
Before I knew that it could hurt
Before I knew that men would lie
There you are.
Able to appear wherever you’d like inside my soul.
Closer to me than anyone.
My best friend
My better self
Seeing what I need
Better than I can
You reach inside me
And hold my heart.
