Today I’m numb
Out of touch with my emotions
Dreaming of only nightmares
And half-filled oceans

Today I got up
Walked around my dream
Looking for you but only found
The other half of me

Today we talked
He begged to be let in
So, I gave up fighting
And said, “Thank you,”
As he crept back in

Today I woke up
A wolf in sheep’s skin
Not feeling like me
And not all the way him

Today I’m complete
Finally, free.
