We found each other. Two broken, chaotic people found each other in the midst of our individual struggles.
And it's so beautiful. It's so wonderful that we can come from the confounds of sorrow and be connected together. I'm completely yours and somehow you ended up being mine too.
In each other, we found sincerity and love. We found comfort and support in each other in the hell that tried to drag us down.
Maybe that's why we're stronger than other couples, because we've been through hell and back together.
And now that we've come out of it, we get to face the rest of this life together.
We are two people who are a little bit bruised and worn down, but we aren't completely broken. We are split and cracked like glass. But we've kept each other from completely breaking into a million little pieces.
Now that we're taking on life together, there's a little bit more beauty to be found in each and every day.
We had lived thinking our lives would continue to be nothing but a mess. We thought we only would continue to survive. We carried our pain and merely tried to exist.
We never thought we could find someone who could look at the scars we have from our battles and see it as a badge of beauty.
Because we came into each other's lives, life seems a little less scary. The pain seems a little easier now.
This life is so much better when two damaged hearts can come together and show each other the beauty in their struggle.
We bring each other the comfort we couldn't find on the outside. Though I know our demons will appear to us time after time, I have you by side.
Even if our joy or comfort is temporary, I know at the end of the day you will always be there to try and make it a lot less difficult than it has to be.
We aren't afraid of the world anymore. We aren't scared to love or be loved. Heartbreak seems so far off.
Fingers intertwined, even through the bad times, I know at the end of the day I will always have you.
I can finally see that just because your heart has been damaged, doesn't mean it's going to stay that way forever.
And you show me that with every single day that passes.
We found each other and I don't plan on letting go.
