I Wanted You To Know... - Poem by chantelle ribeiro

I trembled that day
The first time you asked for my name
I wanted to run
Vulnerable and afraid
I could not move
Your eyes melted me
I saw this stranger
Yet you woke me from my slumber
The slumber of normality
Of feeling nothing
Years of neglect
degraded me
Your voice stirred in me
things long forgotten
You found me interesting
You cared to know ME...
I wanted you to know
how you saved me
once a long time ago
