Today, she stepped out after half a decade,
Today, she slowly removed all the barricades.
Scared, reluctant, apprehensive, unsure,
She gently opened her palm to reveal a heart truly pure.
It revealed a few scars, but glowed radiantly,
She offered it to him, slowly but surely.
Today his eyes watered at the radical change
As he willingly offered, his heart in exchange.
After years of hiding, she decided to embrace love,
As she slowly set her emotions free, like a free dove
in a clear blue sky.
