A part of you exists
here inside me
I feel it now
though I wonder
how it came to be this way
for you were unexpected
an invasion
into my solitary world
after becoming quite accustomed
to failure and rejection
I wonder at you
who chooses not to leave me
even if I try to make you
is love an awakening
or inconvience?
once I did not believe
it was possible at all
then somehow
you were there
and you will not allow me
to be alone anymore
how odd it can be
learning to live
in this new manner
this change of mind
of heart
echoing into my very soul
where you are
