my life has been saved by your love
a number of times
there was no blade
no gun
no pills
but my soul has been tortured
and my mind has been twisted
and you listened
to make sure that i wasn’t
lost in the moment
beholden to a fantasy

you gently stopped me
widened my perspective
enticed me to look deeper
because you had my back
even when it meant
protecting me
