When I am with you, I am supported and loved
When you are absent, the floor falls out.
It’s not that I am reliant on you to meet my needs
It’s just that when you are here I feel completely freed. The tower of my own construction restrains my inner beast
I’ve given you the key, I could not resist
So each day I await for your return to this home
Then I can roam and never feel alone.
My inner Guardian speaks of taking back that which is mine
Feeling afraid that no longer this connection with you will shine
Reassured and lighting the way is the spectre of you
Your heart and mine completely melded without glue.
Thank you for freeing me, allowing my flights
Now I need to determine the when where and how of my own life
Thank you for supporting and not holding me back
For leaving your judgements without loving me less.
