Poem: You are my rock
My only link to sanity
To life
You are the anchor that keeps my feet on the ground
Without you I would float away into space
Most days you are the only thing that keeps me going
In my blackest times, you are the light
When I feel like I might crack, you glue me back together and mend my broken soul
You have seen me through my bleakest moments
The world has tried to tear us apart but has never succeeded
And never will
Without you, life would be meaningless and unbearable
We have seen the best of times and the worst of times
And through it all, we have only grown closer
I never knew I could love anyone the way that I love you
I never knew I could need anyone like I need you
My attachment to you is stronger than I ever thought possible
I need you like I need the air in my lungs
Worse, sometimes
Because without you, I would lose all desire to breathe
When I feel myself teetering on the edge of madness you pull me back from the brink
I want to thank you for everything you do for me
For saving me from myself
Because I am my own worst enemy
And you are the hero of this story
The story of us...
