No words could explain,
how I felt all this time.
All the pain and suffering that
became violence and discontent.
Nothing could be done,
no one could compare.
To the hurt and loneliness I felt.
This void was filled with
Many horrible actions that
I wish could be non-existent.
It tore me to pieces,
then swallowed me up.
Leaving nothing but an empty shell,
collecting darkness, gathering hate.
But it changed, something
Someone broke through.
Someone untied the chains and set me free.
I learned it was okay to cry,
To let my feelings out and,
To be myself.
I learned that tear stains don’t fade but the memories
Become distant and strengthen the soul.
Here I am now,
Indulging in happiness that is not fake,
Having a smile even through my tears,
Knowing that everything is fine
And knowing that my love is stronger than diamonds, and
His being just as strong
