I built walls of self-containment.
Imprisoned myself within a cage.
Years of fury and hostility,
until your love ended my rage.
I was left cold and alone.
Unwanted, and consumed by self-hate.
Years of neglect and abuse,
until your heart unlocked my gate.
I still fight the demons inside,
but my re-born spirit has strength anew.
Years of bruises and scars,
are finally healing, because of you.
Dedicated to my loving husband
