Freed Me

A poem about someone special <3

Everything about me should tell you to run,

To forget you met me, find someone else,

Yet here you stay, standing right beside me,

Unwavering as you see all of me,

Bringing me back to life with every look, every touch,

You're everything I never knew I needed,

You help me embrace every part of myself,

And I thank you,

For in the short months you've known me,

You've helped me remember who I am,

You scratched beneath the surface, did not run,

And you freed me from myself.
