This is a poem about love and fears and the power to overcome them and be happy

The Demons Within

You look at me and what I see is love and tenderness and longing…
You talk to me and what I hear is the fast beat of your heart racing mine…
You touch me and what I feel is shivers down my spine and butterflies in my stomach…
You listen to me and I can tell you anything, coz’ this time you’re really listening…
Yes, this time, for there was also a time when all these were fantasies.
Not even that, no, coz’ I wouldn’t even dare dream about it…
And now that it’s happening and I’m happy, I want to forget all about that,
Like it never happened, like it never existed, like we’re starting fresh.
But there are demons within me who come out every now and then
And make me remember, make me fear and make me sad…
“Go away, demons”, I shout, “I don’t want you to spoil my joy”.
So they recoil in their shadows, waiting for a better time
To come out and scare me again. But I won’t crawl under the bed,
I won’t fear the darkness, I won’t cry myself to sleep anymore.
Instead, I’ll laugh and sing and play and dance them all away,
I’ll start saying words like “us” and “we” and “I love you”,
I’ll wear a big smile and float on cloud number nine,
And wrap myself in your arms and think of caramel and snow,
I’ll roll with you in a big bed with red covers and put my head
On your left shoulder and whisper soft words in your ear…
I’ll hold your hand and kiss you and listen to your stories,
I’ll watch you cook for me and tease you and hug you.
And then you’ll look at me and see not tears, but love…
You’ll talk to me and hear not sadness, but joy…
You’ll touch me and feel not barriers, but life…

This poem is very dear to me as I wrote it at the beginning of a whole new stage in my life and everything I hoped for became true.
