You came to me, barely walking on your feet. The weight of the world on your shoulders was crushing your bones and you couldn't hold it on your own anymore. Your tear stained face looked at me so vulnerably, it almost broke me too. You were so used to dealing with everything yourself, it took everything in you to break down the walls you spent so long building and let me see your bruised soul. Your soul was bleeding, once again your demons had forced you to reopen all the scars, even the ones you thought you had forgotten about. It is so hard for you to trust someone, to let someone see your broken pieces. I saw it. The fear in your eyes that I would leave, that I would shut the door at your face. But then I hugged you with everything I had in me. Because I was scared too. I was terrified that I would say something and you will build those walls back up. I was terrified of losing you. And when you got over the shock, you hugged me back and we stayed like that for the longest of time. There was no need for words. You didn't want me to tell you everything will be okay. You just wanted to be accepted and understood. And I just wanted to be the one you could trust. As we sat there, in each other's embrace, my heart whispered that even though you are broken and shattered, I still love you. I will always love you. I can't promise to heal you, but I can promise I will be here, without any judgements I will always hold you, as long as you want me to. Maybe you heard me through the silence because then you slowly told me all your fears, showed me each one of your scars and let me wipe every tear. You weren't scared anymore, and neither was I. Because I wasn't going to leave you and now you knew that too. .
