Drafted March 2016
My tongue is stripped and graceless
Tripping over itself
To express my love
Around you I feel naked
But I have nothing to hide,
And I even flaunt my ugliness
And you do not turn away
I do not understand why I have been so lucky
I thought that when you needed it most the world turned it’s back on you.
And that when a person was down they were kicked on the ground.
How wrong I was.
And how glad I am that I was wrong.
Angels come in various guises;
Perhaps you are from another realm
Or maybe you really are that rare thing:
Someone who truly loves
And who is honest with themselves.
I have met my soul love
And my heart is softened still
By fresh volleys of tears
When I think of you.
