a Poem by Raquel Swann

You were always there

With me

Trapped between 

A fragile male ego

And denial.

With each passing year

You fell into the depths 

Of my subconscious mind

lost in a maze of confusion. 

Somehow you navigated 

Back to the surface

Making me whole again.

With each passing day

You bring strength to my heart

And soul.

You are the me

I wish to be

Now and forever.

Learning to love

The person you truly are 

Is a rare gift.
