I have no idea. Sometimes I just write and this kind of came out.


No rhyme or reason,

To the things that I’m feeling.

I couldn’t explain it if I tried.

I’m asked to explain what’s inside,

But how does one explain that she’s died?

Sometimes I feel alive again,

A few moments free of despair,

It’s always with him

Because I know a secret

Unlike most,

He cares.

I have friends and I laugh


I laugh a lot.

But something’s missing

Almost like I’ve been running

But now I’m caught.

I’m restrained

In a cage

And they ask if I’m okay.

Some of them I understand

They’re like me

But they hide,

They like to pretend I didn’t see

The pain in their eyes.


But I saw.

That’s what happened to me.

He saw, and I couldn’t hide

But he told me it was okay

He said he wouldn’t leave

He wasn’t scared

He didn’t run away.

For a while I didn’t believe him

How could I?

He said he would stay.

That didn’t stop them from leaving.

Promises meant nothing to them,

Why would they matter to him?


But they did.

You soon learn people

You see if their actions match their words

If your first impression was correct

If the vocals match the chords.

He never pushed or pried,

He didn’t force or manipulate

And he never lied.

He gave me his secrets,

Before he asked for mine.

Trusted me with his darkness,

He was patient and kind.

He knows what I am,

He’s a part of me.

On the inside, we’re the same.

Two branches of the same tree.

Now he says he loves me,

I believe him.

The dark isn’t so lonely anymore

With someone to help you see.
