Damages

He watched me with cautious eyes when I stood before him; exposing myself bare. 

“You see,” I began, ” for as long as I can remember, I’ve been this way.

Masking the truth and pretending I’m okay. 

But someday, eventually, my body began to resemble my soul. These tired eyes, the self-inflicted pain. 

Left such scars on my body that I no longer know how to explain. 

So believe me, when I say that I understand if you no longer want to stay. 

That this body of mine is so gruesome that you feel the need to runaway. 

For I know what it’s like to be abandoned; I’m quite used to the pain.

 I just wanted to show you the truth now instead of when it’s too late…”

I stood there for what seemed to be an eternity; waiting for his reaction but he just stood there- examining me. After ten minutes had passed, he held out his hand and gestured me forward. When I hesitated, he took my hand in his and held it up to his lips. 

“You are a beautiful, chaotic creature,” his breath was warm against my hand. “And I am completely besotted with you.

I want you to know that I plan to stay, 

I want to know where you go when the light in your eyes begin to fade. 

So I will follow you into the darkest corners of your mind with total abandon. 

And bring you back, even if it kills me in the end.”
