He told her words he never spoke,
And never told them in a rush.
She heard words she never heard,
Without the guilt of love.
She showed him her cracked pieces,
After broken glass had been his knife.
He showed her all his fallen petals,
When she’d seen thorns her whole life.
She promised forever to be his shadow,
And he promised to be her light.
Forever, they would see each other
Even in the darkness of eternal night.
