I lay there listening to her voice, when I suddenly start to cry. She's starting to get afraid. Worried. Helpless. I hate that. I feel so weak, pathetic, whiney, everything you can think of. She's so patient with me though, she's reminding me to breathe, and that everything's gonna be ok as long as she's there. I don't know how it got started but I spilled everything to this girl. My whole life story in complete misery and tears. I tell her how much I've hated myself, how long it's been since I thought of suicide, pain. I stop, listening to what seems like the never ending silence. She's breathing heavily now, choppy sentences slip off her tongue. Now I'm scared.
I hate when people pitty me, I hate it when I make them feel my pain. Normally I'd refuse to even say a thing about what's wrong to anyone. And I don't know how she does it, but everything came out at once. Her sweet voice suddenly broke the silence. Telling me I'd never be alone again, that I'd never have to conquer anything on my own. And that even if it takes forever to do, she'll fix my broken heart. I can't help but feel loved, wanted, needed, cared for. Everything that's....good. I haven't felt that way in a long time. But I don't want it to stop. The countless hours I spend talking...just talking to this girl seems to make everything go away. The way she promises to take me away from this place, and make me happy. The way she laughs whenever I become flustered, the way I can feel her smile as I tell her how my day went. How I'm feeling. The way she tells me I'm beautiful and makes me believe it. The way she says 'I love you' with such sincerity and love. My heart melts each time.
I can't explain what exactly is going on. What magic power she has over me, the protection I feel just from her voice. I can't. It's impossible. But it's the most amazing feeling I will ever want to experience. I've never gotten love or attention from anyone that wasn't just pure pity. She called me a couple of days ago just to leave a message about how much she loves me. I almost cried. Simple things like 'you're beautiful', 'I love you so much', made me so weak.
My hearts been broken countless times, and I've given up on finding the peices. But this is all I ask of you. Will you stay with me forever?
Will you tell me that you love me just to see me smile?
Will you help me get through anything?
Will you promise to never turn your back?
Will you...be the only thing keeping me here?
Will you love me?
