Your Darkness Feels Like Home
You think your darkness makes you weak,
think the fairy tales were wrong.
You think it renders you apart,
and chars you to the bone.
You think no one can stand your heat,
no one can stay for long.
You think no one could love your heart,
just born to be alone.
But you don't see how hard you've fought,
while broken, you stand tall.
Silence held the years of pain,
you carry the weight for all.
Your suffering – an afterthought,
always brave while feeling small.
You stood alone and faced the rain,
fearless before the squall.
I think your dark makes you unique,
Built steel around your bones.
I think your cracks a work of art –
'cause through your light has shone.
I know I'll stand your burning streak,
let the crackle be my song.
If just one message I can impart –
your darkness feels like home.
