My Serenity

After my life fell onto black days and down in a dark hole of nothingness,
Before I knew you wanted something to do with me after all,
Crystals shining beautifully in the night sky might as well have been pieces of dung flung down on me by the mockery of the gods.
Depression became an everyday, never-ending way of life.
Everything had this menacing shadow glazed over it, everything that was once pleasing.
Finally after what's seemed like centuries of grief, I have some peace of mind.
Grains of loving innocence are showered upon me as you speak words of wisdom to your student.
Happiness doesn't seem so far away for us, this couple of kids who know too much for their ages.
Indebted and so grateful am I to you.
Just as you've busted the defibrillator out for the sake of reviving the real me, I vow to do the same for you.
Kindness is in one hand and a tender touch from my lips to yours in the other,
Love from my depths will bring you back from getting lost in the insanities of life.
My darling, my serenity,
Nothing's gonna harm you, not while I'm around.
Ophelia couldn't maintain a grip on her own life, lost in her lover's insanity.
Pretty little face, weak little mind it seems like.
Quiet and weak I suppose I appear to the world.
Rain falls to my chin almost every day, I know.
Surprising as it may be though, I am like an ant, much stronger than I appear.
Together with my serenity, I will be invincible.
Until the day of reckoning, we will rule our land, our surroundings.
Vision will be repaired so we can both see things with the eyes of God.
Water frozen by the ice queen, tainted and murderous will never reach thy lips because I would never let that happen to you any longer.
X's and O's, to and fro, stabs and jabs from old loves past, forget them.
You are mine and I am yours.
Zip close the cover over the glossy mirror and use only the reflection of yourself coming off my gaze, eyes locked for all eternity.
