While you were sleeping...

Collected all of my little pieces
Locked them away
Won't put them back together
Because I know there's life to be found in the destruction
Instead I keep them safe for you
They're yours if you want
Piece by piece, or all at once
I can lay them all out and frame them,
Naked from the inside out,
If that's what you need.
Just please don't hide from me.
Hideaway with me.
I'll tell you all of my secrets
And you show me what you're made of.
There's something intoxicating
About discovering a being handcrafted for mine.
All of its beasts
In all of their glory.
Watching them soften and relax under the comfort
Of knowing I was created to redefine every rendition of love ever given to you.

I was never one to believe in love at first sight.
But when I first saw her we promised her lifetimes.
My soul & I.
There's no way I could have known that,
But see She was always smarter than me.
Rejecting every request of love given to me.
Because all they ever really wanted was to take away pieces of me.
And She was saving those for her.
For the one who already saw us for exactly what we were.
And perfectly loved every layer.

Grasping at limbs that always break under pressure.
I've drowned over & over trying to survive my sanity.
Do you know the way she fights with me?
The way she claws, kicks, & screams at me...
Just to get back to you?
