How I see them

Our meeting was one way

My life has been, what can I say?

They can make my day or life

or cut through it with a knife


When they’re happy, I am

When they’re not, neither am I

They’re new to me

but I can see


They haven’t told it all

but they’ve answered my call

I thought I was lost

but there is a cost


They know it all

everytime I fall

It’s hard to know me well

I’m sometimes hard to tell


I want this to work

bad enough that it hurts

each time we talk

they never want to walk


I’m a lot to handle

the fire of a candle

but I have a heart

stored away in the dark


They found the place

the path theirs to trace

It’s almost scary

such a rarity


They see themself as a pain

I see it as a gain

I know they’ve seen a lot

without it being caught


They said I deserve a better

No, I deserve a getter

Someone to be there

When no one else is there to care


I won’t lose them

not like a simple rim

They mean more

then my own core


I want to help

them be themself

I want them to get there

out of their own hair


I know I’m the same

playing that game

but they’re all I have

to be myself too

I'm a recent college graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology that is searching for their way in life. I want to work with animals by helping them in the future.
