Twice bitten, twice shy, was I.
You saw through the cage I made for myself
Out of broken heart shards and mirrored bars
And bandaged hopes and fragile words
Twice hurt, too scared, was I.
You caressed the broken pieces
Taped them carefully using kind words
And light touches that burned like heaven
Fought you off hard as I could, did I.
You waited until I fought myself out
Until I forgot what I was fighting against
And there was an opening for something new
Caught off guard, off center, was I.
You snatched me up before I hit the floor
Dusted off the pieces of me I'd thought lost
And tied them with ribbons made with care
Turned my back, thought it lost did I.
You showed me not what I thought I was
But what you saw me to be, what I wanted to be
And I can't remember why I was so scared to try
Lost and confused, am I.
You could be what I have been looking for
Someone to complete the half of me I lost
And I fall harder for you every time you say 'hello'
