♥ Without you, it's all too bright and blinding
          There is no moon, there are no stars
          Only noises and shouts

I'm disoriented to my very core

And your voice is now somehow different
but, oh, how I love it
          so reassuring and calming

You are so much better than me
          With your steadfast sense of honor and code of honesty
          Always doing the right thing at the expense of what you want

And I stand before you full of impulse and without any self control
Yet you don't judge me
          You only kiss my forehead and tell me that my heart will lead the way
          as long as I am true to it and those around me

You are the part of my soul that is held captive by petty pride and incessant desire 
And deep down I know I don't deserve you or the relief you gift my heart

I know that I have to let go and fade into the chaos of every day without you
          but I just can't fucking sleep without you near

In response...

Flaws are the battle scars of life
     wear them proudly
     because they are what I most love about you

There are no pretenses, nothing hidden
     just your heart, there for the taking
     my taking

And you are my night and you are spectacular 
     the only one that can rock me to sleep
     the only one that calms my fears
You envelop me with kindness and sincerity 
     nestled in your heart is where I find my peace
