Light and darkness shine through your eyes,
Content and needing all at the same time.
You have had to say many good-byes.
More than one should have to say in a lifetime.
Abused and taunted by the hands that carries your same blood,
Haunted and confined in certain moments and places.
Silent and secretively hiding from the world tears come in floods.
For sure, your scars have left traces.
Suffering silence vibrant through your being,
Your appearance masking how you are truly feeling,
Hiding away inside so now one can see,
For you do not want anyone’s sympathy.
All you want is a deep connection,
With someone who understands your conflictions,
And, someone you can confide in without feeling convicted.
For you need sensitivity and someone with tenderness and affection.
Then you will bloom with life for you will feel safe with her.
And, your hand will be bonded to her hand and she will walk with you through life.
And, everything that was will be a blur.
For pure love and compassion will be your cure.
