Until You

Until you, I was not satisfied.
Inside me was empty.
I was a cavern meant to hold love,
But no love was sent to me.
Until you.
Thinking of this brings tears to my eyes.
But not just any tears,
The tears of the joy that’s been pent up
For the last 15 years;
Of the love that I’ve never been able to give;
Of the happiness I’ve never truly felt until you.
Thinking of you erases all the bad memories.
The thoughts of death,
The reflection of heartbreak,
But it gives the reverie of bliss
That nobody had been able to honestly give
Until you.
