I was holding hands with my depression, then you came and snatched it away from me. I was holding mountains of hurt in the space between my bed and the light switch, that I stopped intending to climb. I told you I don't like being called beautiful because the horrors I hold, that look like the dark circles surrounding my hazel eyes, if you see them you won't find me pretty then. But you told me you never needed to look at me to find me pretty, you told me the words I sent you, that look like the hands of death hanging from the ceiling of life, you told me you find beauty in them. And I couldn't believe you, I wouldn't until you showed me the gardens you have planted, upon those words, that look like sun surrounding the flower daisy (you are a garden of daisies my love) You held my hand and helped me walk when I couldn't even seem to remember how to crawl, you helped me like summer does to the fall.
You planted seeds (of hope) in the palms of my hands, the same ones which held death, and you gave them ground water and then finally your sun. You planted yourself like the sun, when I couldn't reach for the light switch, and you stayed there until My life itself became one.
I remember when you asked me which nick name I like to be called, I told you I used to be Shippy once, now all I feel like is a sinking ship, in a ocean full of darkness.
You - without ever making me realize all this while that you decided to call me shippy, you were making me her.
I can never, never thank you enough. So I guess I won't thank you
I thank the universe instead💝
