That Night, You Gave Me the Space To Be

That night, you gave me the space to be
a vulnerable mess, where I risked everything

I told you the stories of a tormented past,
the ones that never found a place to rest

I spoke at lengths about the pain that laid
deep within, festering like a rotten corpse

I talked about, and cried over, all the ways
people have abandoned me all my life

How all I ever wanted was for one person
to have the courage to stay the course

Through all of the ups and downs, when
the going got tough, and the tough got tougher

And here you are, you stayed in my palace of pain,
a permanent guest, to show me how love could be

And somehow, in your own special way, you set me free
