The first moment my eyes laid upon you
It was like breaking through
Through to the other side
Where deep sadness subsides.
As I hide in your gaze
You dampened my self-destructive blaze
I am brazened in adoration
For the fleeting moments of elation
Because in my life I waited with patience
For a sensation of peace and comfort in living.
Bestowed is the forgiving nature of thyself
As you lifted me from my hell
As my soul swells
In the lashings of my existence
Your love offered me a resistance
A resistance from self-loathing
In the jungle of my mind
You are the oasis
That holds what’s left of my heart in stasis
So that I can walk the desert once more
Awaking Love at my very core.
