Until You

For most of my life

I’ve felt out of place



Until you 

I’ve always thought deeply

I’ve been highly sensitive 



And I thought I was the only one like me

Until you

I’ve had strong opinions

I’ve felt ignored and misunderstood 

Until I met you

I felt like no one was listening 

Like I would never be seen

I was screaming for attention 

Writing, drawing and painting my pain

And no one saw what I was expressing

No one saw the real me

Until I found you

You heard what I was saying

You responded to my cried for help

And now I feel whole within myself

Secure and certain


Which I have never felt before

Since mom, so I knew it was possible

I have been searching for connection

And I finally found it 

In you
