And Then it Was Just You.



You saw what no one else saw.

You saw a person with heart.

A person…above all.

Red flag this, red flag that. You ignored it all.

Now I watch you every day and every night, with loving eyes.

Because you saw through my concrete walls. You saw what mattered.

Acceptance is not easily obtained, yet you flooded me with it.

You saw past the open wounds behind my eyes…you saw who I was.

Holding my hand, we trekked the caverns and hidden passages of my heart and my mind…exploring them all.

I am no one special.

Just a misunderstood woman with a past.

And yet, you saw more.

You saw love. In me.

And that, above all else, was the only flag that mattered.
