Just the way you are


Just the way you are

I love you

He says

A small, soft

Quiet voice

In the furthest recesses of my mind

I almost didn’t hear Him

For all the noise in my head

All the anger

And the confusion

All the doubt

And the pride

The mixed emotions

And emptiness inside

Thoughts of suicide

I Love you

He says

I hear Him

Louder this time

And clearer

He repeats the refrain

I love You my Beloved

Just the way you are!
