    i’ve never had the pleasure
    of shaking hands with love
    sometimes I wonder
    if I’m worthy of its introduction

    i feel as though i’m transparent
    and cupid’s arrow goes straight through me
    my skin is repellent
    the love bug never bites me

    i’ve danced my life solo
    never sang a duet
    i’ve tossed prayers to heaven
    that didn’t ricochet back

    i saw love as an illusion
    it could’ve been anything more
    i became a nonbeliever
    until my soul was restored

    my past was erased
    and my smile became real
    ever since the day that I met
    Him​
