Overwhelming and obscuring it consumes me like a fire,
Igniting my desires while sucking the life out of me.
It wraps its arms around me,
Whispering that it has found me and that I can no longer hide.
Shrouding my vision and guiding my footsteps,
Causing my heart to pound in my chest.
It knocks me to the ground,
Burying my heart in the vast sea of hopelessness.
Making my decisions and making me scream,
Eradicating my confidence and dashing my dreams.
It removes my options and strips me bare,
Leaving me with half a personality and half a heart.
Burning down my defenses and leaving me wide open,
Filling my heart with incomprehensible joy that couldn’t possibly be for me.
It lets people in and reveals the frightened, desperate girl within,
Stretching her arms wide waiting for someone to run into them.
Taking over my senses and molding me into the woman I wish to be,
Making me queen over my heart and my soul.
It sets my soul on fire and my pain bounces off my barrier,
Reminding me that it’s not me but Him who lives within me.
I’ve been broken,
Yet I’m still standing.
I’ve been hurt,
But I can still breathe.
I’m more than a conqueror through Him who loves me.
