This is the first poem that I ever wrote. I went through a very tough time last year, and I self-harmed for a while. This poem is about how my fiance found out about that and didn't judge me; he was the one who helped me to recover, and I am now a better person because of him.


Delicate whispers in the middle of the night

I spilled my heart out to you as you held me tight

You thought you knew me until today

I’m like a moon half hidden away


My skin used to glisten with blood red lines

Yet still you stayed when you saw the signs

I thought I knew you yet I was wrong

You really did care about me all along


I feel invincible when we are together

I just know our love will last forever

Stars and sunsets might shine so bright

But you will always be my favourite light

Touching glimpse into your fragile soul. I'm so glad you have found peace and strength.
