You brought me back
I was slipping away
Fell  off the ledge
I lost my way. 

You reeled me in
Threw me a line
You held me tight
Caught me in time.

Shattered…. in pieces
Scattered about
My heart was broken
Had no way out.

Too weak and confused
I’d been knocked around
You picked me up
Got me off the ground.

Wounded and battered
Alone….left for dead
Nothing else mattered
It all had been said.

You held me up
Knew what I needed
You stopped the noise
Stopped me from bleeding.

No going back
Too much desire
Consumed with lust
Set me on fire.

I paid the price
We went too far
I felt the pain
I’ve got the scars.
