A/N: Bolded/italicized=start of a new stanza
"Save You" (THT)
You're the most important person in my life
You always were since I was 14
Long, curly haired beauty with the impossibly long legs
Babe, you were beautiful
Had your guard up
Full of venom
Paralyzed anyone that attempted to get near
Within a five foot radius of you
I could not explain why I kept coming back for more
You must have had some alluring power over me
Because I insisted on getting involved in your life
And your life inevitably became intertwined with mine
I observed that everything came back to you
I know you think I am the courageous one
You once said, "You're always saving me."
I replied, "Someone has too."
The sentiment still holds true
I want to say I will not let anything happen to you
But it maims me profoundly inside to know I cannot promise that
I do not have the power to save you
Not this time
And I think I am going out of my mind with alarm
I am anguished at the notion that fate could effortlessly take you away from me
How am I supposed to live without you, Peyt?
I cannot bear the thought of that warped reality
You are my precious, amber sun
Your brilliance radiates depth and meaning
Like the solar system, I revolve around you
My world would be a desolate existence
If you were not there alive and breathing the same air with me
Didn't fate bring us together?
We're supposed to be adults now
Only I don't have any more answers than I did
When I was 17
Ready to conquer college
And begin a blissful life in the "real world"
All I can do is be there for you every step of the way
I would follow you anywhere
A/N: Inspired by 6x17-6x19 and Kelly Clarkson's Save You. Awesome song by the way! No matter how hard I tried to add this line, "I wish I could save you" the line never flowed well with the rest of the poem so it was cut out of the poem a little writer's note for you curious people who actually read my A/Ns.
