I saw beastly enamel white failure to comply while you saw only beauty in a crooked smile.
I was defiant in disbelieving your truth blinkering my eyes away from the good
that you found within the cracked spine of a book when I saw only broken like me.
You built trust through kindess and care while I built barricades on foundations of despair.
But you never left you stayed in my ears like a prayer.
You took something that brought me nothing but pain and named it your 'Polar Bear'.
