"In only two months, Alex became my angel, and in only two months I thought he belonged in heaven, because people like me didn’t deserve to drag him down. But today he is still on earth with me, and now I couldn’t be happier to keep him here." ~ Nikki


Something inside me is
Screaming, "No!"
"You don't need anyone
But yourself. Be your
Own happiness."
But the way he
Sees into my head,
His manner of
Speaking…
The words that he
Uses to make my
Crutch and speed up
The heeling of my
mind's broken legs--
They're perfect.
Undeniably so.
And I find myself leaning
Towards him more and
More.
What started out as
A subtle attraction has
Turned into something
That I'm afraid to
Name.
Afraid to think.
And it's pulling me closer,
Inch by inch.
I just didn't notice until
Our shoulders were
Already touching.

But I need you--
I do--
And I know that you
Need me, too.
