Blurb : In an instant, my world turned upside down

Because of one incident, my life will never be the same


Every day I struggled to breathe

Every day I went through the motions


I felt too much

I was numb


I was drowning

I was lost inside the black


So they made me go there

I was already there, watching from the dark


And then I met him

And then I saw her


He scared me to death

She took my breath away


He was darkness

She was my light


They whispered he can’t be touched

She was the only one I could touch


I couldn’t be with him, they needed me

I fucking needed her


So I told him I would be his friend

I told her I would be her friend. For now.


But I couldn’t resist him for long

She finally realized that she’ll always be mine


We were a hot mess

We were the perfect kind of mess


Then reality dawned on me

Then my demons broke loose


I was underwater, trying to break through to the surface

I reached out my hand, trying to pull her to shore


Could he really help me?

Would she accept me, scars and all?


This was us

This was our story
