The Rhythm of Love

You broke through these walls
No matter how I built them up
You found the cracks and slipped behind the lines
You broke my patterns apart
Chase away the memories
You found the pieces and put them back in place

I have to thank you
For being you
For seeing me
And just for being

My downward cycle halted
My misery consumed
All the torn and tattered pieces sewn together again
My crashing course averted
No longer hanging on the line
You took my comfort zone and showed me
It was just a defense built in my mind

You took my false sense of security
And showed me how to let subside
The walls I built around me
In the cage I fortified

You taught me how to laugh
To live
To love again
You taught how to be me
Without harping on the memories

You found me hiding in the shadows
Chasing ghosts of days gone by
You told me memories aren't there to be revived
They only exist inside the mind
And they're only purpose is to remind
Of things to avoid a second time
And all the time spent in my head
Dreaming of how to change the past
Kept me from looking forward
Causing me to lose my path

So, in response and gratitude
I find myself moving forward next to you
I can see a new day dawning
At the end of every night
And I can face every morning
With new memories in mind

If only

It was more than a fiction my mind embellished. There's always hope though, right?
I honestly don't have a clue where some of these inspirations come from
