The Truth of It.

Andrea Babbs

Twilight has fallen

The seasons have changed

Things have been shattered

And slowly remade

It has come

Done its damage

Vanished

Only to reappear

I was wary 

Torn to pieces

Again and again

Unwilling to continue

You came close

It by your side

The compassion you gave

As you cradled me

You showed me

Showed it wasn’t evil

Showed how I could be fixed

How you could fix me

The voice inside

Still wary and afraid

But willing to try 

To love again.
