The cracks in my skin let your light in

Running barefoot to you I feel my feet get cut from the pavement
You said give it your best shot and then took everything as I gave it
You asked if I was more afraid of loving or being hurt – that was my favorite
Because I’m still thinking of my answer to you and keep wavering
To be honest with you, you made me think a lot and I savor it
The journey has been amazing and I still can’t believe how we made it
I’m still in amazement because my heart is a maze and you still made your way in
I asked for your heart – and you whispered in my ear “here… take it”
I hunger for you, but for what it’s worth know it’s more than just a craving
Now, I feel I’m missing without having you beside the heart that gave in
The one that tells you to “pillow me to sleep” because you have me taken
You’ve been braver than I thought I could ever be and that has me shaking
Because our passion is so raw that it just reminds me of my chapped lips flaking
I kept this heart so safe, but like a thief in the night I was defenseless to your break in
What if I’m not afraid of anything, would it be okay that I was acting so brazen?
What if I am afraid of both? Could you hold my hand still and let me know it’s okay then?
Because there’s always a chance that I will float to the heavens with hope and then drop snowflaking…

You could be my answer and I know I’m not mistaken
Because as dry as I am from feeling, I would risk diving into you full speed without braking
And as withered I am from the past, I’m still dreaming about you when I awaken

So just know that I’m no longer afraid of taking you in or of the fractures from within
Because it’s those same cracks in my skin that lets your light in
