My Constant

love, love, long as we got

By angela hepworthPublished 2 months ago 1 min read

You, dear, are my constant

For me, it all starts and ends with you

A deep, hindering unease in my chest

A steady, stable fear

Like a hand clutched around my pounding heart

Was vanquished in me the day I met you

And a truth like a pit of vipers opened

One I once tried to close, to hide, to conceal

Until your hand rested over my scrambling self

My devastating person unveiled to you

But you didn’t run

And I felt a peace

A love, a gorgeous state of bliss

A state of acceptance and happiness

Unlike that of anything that can be known or seen or understood

By one on the outside of the soul bond that is us

An unwavering will was instilled in me

Because you know me, because you love me

Not because you helped me grow

But because you helped me help myself

And I helped you in turn

I put my fingers on the deep, shattered cracks in you and let you press them down

And they mended themselves on their own

You are my constant, love

And my love is tried and true for you

-

I had no idea what to put for the subtitle, so forgive the sort of random SZA lyrics. Love her.

Thanks for reading!
