All along her life, she’s been saving it all,
not a single glance of hers could
be stolen by all those who fancied her.
Yet, her guards came crumbling down,
at the warmth of a soul, so beautiful and deep.
She gifted all that she saved, piece by piece
to this stranger whom she couldn’t resist.
She saw herself, through the pair of eyes
that accepted all that needy mess, she is.
Never had she known that one intense feeling
can be your biggest weakness and strength.
