Run your needle through this dark life
Threading it with sunlight.
Shed these demons of the past,
Forever clutching at my soul
Trying to claim it as their own.
Halt these wars of indecision,
That rage on within
Tearing at the fabric of my being.
Catch my breath for me
As I stumble endlessly into your eyes
So on we can stand,
Forever hand in hand,
Face this fight as one.

I love the last lines:

"So on we stand, forever hand in hand, face this fight as one."

I'm not even joking, this poem spoke to me.
