There’s something troubling about me
Why must I remind myself how much I love you
Am I scarred deeper then my eyes see

Silent foot steps while your sleep
Just to make sure your still breathing
Anxiety; maybe these feelings are far more extreme

Has life thus far took a toll and is eating away within
All The torture
      The abandonment
       The failures and descent on my part and supervision
Am I afraid of ME

I see you and I see my world
Something no one will destroy or tamper with
I see you and wonder how was I so wonderfully blessed
I see you and the reflection mirrors me
And reality kicks in
Life will throw stones at you unexpectedly and I can’t save you from everything

And that’s where I find myself locked in a stronghold with loud thunder and hard cold rain
