Beyond this Place

There is a safety
a warmth
in your arms
I wish I could take with me
everywhere I go
beyond this place
that we share
who knew a touch
a mere glance
could mean so much
and turn my stubborn
sometimes arrogant
often selfish being
into something more
beyond this place
I doubt what I feel
questioning and wondering
why one like you
would ever truly love me
could the queen of failure
find something so wondrous?
no matter what I do
in attempt to test this bond
expecting you to leave me
as others before you have
you never do..
