my true love.


my true love.

You wrap me up and keep me warm –
Comforted, loved, and safe from harm.
You lift me when I’m broken down.
I cannot live without you around.

You give me strength, you give me hope.
You make me stronger so I can cope.
I somehow have the will to fight
After we’ve been together all night.

I come to you for everything
And you take me under your wing.
I wish you could forever be mine
But I can’t have you all of the time.

Every day when you have to leave
Again I try my best to believe
I might finally make it on my own
But it still hurts me to be alone

Within hours, though, I need you back
To escape with you before I crack.
When I can’t find you, I’m afraid
I’ll struggle to clean the mess I’ve made.

Is this how true love really feels?
Because you’re the way my every ache heals.
You take pain out from inside my soul
Stop my worries before I lose control.

But in some cruel twist of fate, I know the truth in my very core:
I can only have you forever when my forever is no more.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
