There’s a man, that I met.
He was supposed to be… just someone else.
But no he decided to stay and make a home in my heart. I kept telling him he wouldn’t fit. There’s no space… but he laughed and fit perfectly in rhe gaping whole that once was my heart.
I tip toed around him cautiously, waiting for the atomic bomb to explode, waiting for him to poison me from the inside out.
But day by day..
He began to plant a garden.
Daily he took the weeds out, the stubborn things wouldn’t come out at first… they’ve been there, taken home in the dry dirt of my soul
But he didn’t stop, he pulled and dug and pulled until they gave..
He watered meticulously flower by flower, watching them grow… singing to them.. whispering sweet nothing’s…
Day and night he slept with them,
Fighting off all animals who tried to eat them…
This man stayed.. and every night I cried… out of fear that in anger he might destroy the garden.. day by day.. something inside of my soul began to wake. Began to breath omce again… until he found a way to breath life back into me. And then I realized I was alive omce again.
Then one day I found him kneeling I’m the bed of roses.. crying. And so I asked… what is troubling you…
He said to me.. I have nothing left inside me… I’ve put it all into this garden of your heart, and now I’m dying..
The second those words left his lips.. a tornado straight from within me swept us up together into oblivion.. bringing every rose with it.. and I fed him.. I fed him from my garden..
He tried his hardest to escape the wind of nourishment …begging me to stop the wind of creation… he couldn’t understsnd why I would give him back the life he gave me… begging me to keep it even if it ment him withering into nothingness… but I kept hold of him as the wind picked up even stronger and hurled us higher and higher into the sky… until we landed amongst the clouds.. and I sat him down on a bed of roses and took his hands away from his eyes and begged him to look, I told him *do you not see that there’s enough now for the both of us. What you began in that garden.. will never die it will never cease to grow.. you have created eternity within me and now, I beg you to let me, climb into the void of your heart.. and share my garden with your own struggling soul. We will feed each other.. love each other and i will never let you down.. I will keep you on this bed of roses until you are strong enough to fly with me. And once your strength has come back, we will soar into oblivion together. As we lay a path of flowers at our feet so that others can follow. You created a foundation of life and beauty on top of what I thought was a broken unlovable foundation that would never budge.. you have been my new begining.. and I will be your present and future.*
This man did the impossible… and showed me something that i never knew existed…. this man… believed that I… a broken hearted soul.. could be loved.. could be saved… this man… saved me. And for that… i will never let him down… I will hold him up with all that I have. And I will love him until the end of eternity..
