I Saw Her…

I saw her in her confusion
And doubt and insecurity
I saw her in her darkness
An embryo of fear
Naked and alone

I held her in my womb
Healed some hurts with my heart
But she never trusted
And never let me give to her
Freely

She damaged my love
Robbed me of my desire
Warped me into painful questioning
Her ferocious, primal unquenchable thirst
Bleeding me to the bone with its need
Love me, love me, love me
Love me, love me, love me
Need me, want me, hold me
Forsake all others
Be mine completely

I saw her in this madness
In her perfect insanity
In her desperate, tortured torment
And even in her abuse
Yet I loved her anyhow

Simply because
I saw her
