Sometimes the hardest words 
to say are the ones we mean 
the most.
The feelings felt the deepest 
play hide and seek with those 
It's hard to see inside the 
battered soul and understand 
its' mechanics.
The walls are thick and heavily 
guarded, only the truth will 
On the surface romance is 
eclipsed by fear.
You are loved from a much 
deeper place.
Within the shadow filled 
hallways lies your place in the 
center of it all.
The place where hope and love 
meet to discuss eternity.
