She peeled back my skin and dove within
Slipping through the seams of my armor
She slid beneath the steel and strength
Until the armor was no longer fashioned to protect me but to envelop us
She fit - connected in a way that only a puzzle fashioned by the creator could have made
She Tenderly loved me in ways I’d never needed but suddenly could not live without.
She Changed me - quietly stripped away the loneliness and left tenderness in its place
You - it’s been you - the storm that never ends, the drink that never dries up, the warmth that never grows cold.
You fastened me together better than I could have done alone.
You put effort into us. You made two singles one whole with deliberate determination.
everything - to me.
