I used to stand on my own

Keeping all that is mine in me

Bottled

Hidden

My world is my own

I exist for me

Strong

I used to stand on my own

Staring at my own feet

Watching

Focused

My eyes for my own

I exist for me

Independent

.But.

.Now.

.Everything.

.Has.

.Changed.

Since you came

I am no more

I'm on my knees

Tired of hanging

Wanting to fall

Weak

I felt free

Now I am free

Free to breathe in

The sweet smell of roses

To float and fall

Like the cherry blossoms

Or the leaves in autumn

I'm unprotected

My walls down

Letting you in

I am naked

Nothing but my skin

Weak

Helpless in your arms

Falling asleep

Yes

With you.

With nothing

But your hand

Gently brushing

Upon my cheek

And a tear from my eye.
