The Skeptic

By RoseTheBrokenHearted

Meeting you was unexpected, but it was like coming home - like finding the peace you didn't know you were missing. Meeting you was like being whole for the first time - and Lord knows I didn't have a clue that a piece of me was missing. There was something inside that told me I had to - that I //needed// to know you, I don't know what that something was, but I'm glad that it was there. I'd like to think it was fate - that fate is in fact a feeling.
The spark that ignited - ignited so quickly, it came out of nowhere, yet, I wasn't blind-sided. It came so effortlessly - so naturally. It was - it is beautiful. It led me to the light - it sparked life into me again, another thing - I didn't know I was missing. It helped me see that I was still trapped in the dark - facing faceless monsters I couldn't see.
I'm not healed and I'm far from perfect, but still you love me with everything you have in you - as if I am, you love me as if I was never broken in the first place. You see the mess that is me, but to you - it's no mess, I'm no mess. I'm just the skeptic who found her fairytale - except this time it's not just maladaptive daydreaming or lowering my standards in hopes that I might one day be worthy of a love so pure. Except this time it's real and it's mine.
I'm just the poet who lost her words in the best way - it's like never being able to find the proper words to describe just how it feels. Like the words that exist - just simply aren't good enough to tell you just how much you mean to me.

    I'm definitely holding onto it and don't plan on letting this go. Truly the first time my feelings have been reciprocated and I couldn't be any more grateful for it. Thank you for the kind words and the advice! -RTBH
