Wanting you to pull me close,
Reach inside touch my soul.
Learnt lessons, way before my time,
So I can’t be sorry, I refer to my heart like cold as ice,
All of this has caused me a bit of a fright.
You chipped away at my icy exterior,
You smile, you laugh,
So I let you come nearer.
Into my heart you have laid the foundation of fires,
Making me forever warmer, accepting:
Wanting of change,
Come a long way since my darkest place.
