The Frightened One

In your silence I can feel
Terrifying fear
I’m aware you doubt yourself
In letting people near

I don’t think we were prepared
For what things had in store
Both of us a little stung
From pain we’ve felt before

Yet somehow in the midst of fire
A connection formed
And over your defenses
I recklessly stormed

As I got in closer
I know you have pulled back
But I didn’t break those walls
So that I could attack

I know you are a goddess
Who always will survive
I’m not here to hurt you
But to take you alive

Yes you are a goddess
I’m not looking for a savior
I am just a warrior who
Shall fight to win your favor
