The One that Stayed

I felt you

and it scared me how much you could see

you were the first person to know what I'd been through

 

and you still wanted me?

I wasn't sure how to feel

no one wanted to stay after what you'd seen

 

everyone else ran

I scared them off with the truth

but you told me that wasn't who I am

 

the truth isn't pretty

but you told me I was

because you saw the strength in me

 

you wanted the real me

and I showed you just how broken

a girl could really be

 

but why did you stay?

I can't give you anything

but that's what love is, or so they say

This poem is about: 
Me
