Kindred

" ...the proof was in the feeling she gave him." - Koren Zailckas  

His heart reached out to hers  
Inside the shadow of heartbreak  
It's a hope to connect and mend the wounds  
Inflicted by those we once would've bled for  

Defeated and forced to submit the king of my customized hell †
Bound by my demons in flesh, bone and blood  
Lead to impulsive and dangerous behaviours to cope and survive †

His heart reached out to hers  
Inside the shadow of heartbreak  
It's a hope to connect and mend the wounds  
Inflicted by those we once would've bled for  

A guide approached to give a sense of direction  
Utilizing hope, even just a sliver of hope, to †
Continue along my wicked labyrinth  
Just like footsteps left behind or †
Breadcrumbs leading away from terror †

The presence of love in the relationships long past is a presence that never left the complexity of the paths that scar the pathways of my mind  
It holds a place for an intimate connection  
Reigniting a flame that lights the doorstep of a new beginning with someone new  

His heart reached out to hers  
Inside the shadow of heartbreak  
It's a hope to connect and mend the wounds  
Inflicted by those we'd once would've bled for  

Her presense left an intense connection  
It was a connection that gave life to a troubled life... A life left wanting to expand †

Her heart reached out to his †
A connection grown in the shadows  
Feeding a creature with love, safety, peace and friendship  
And this creature grew and lived to protect a unique and unforgettable connection
To protect a private and valuable love
Starting with a tentative hope
