Love Me in the Dark.

Love me in the darkest places of my heart
Where polite niceties disappear
And what is left are crude, evil thoughts
That ought not see the light of day

Love me when I am weak
When I cave into my basest desires
And show a side of me
The world will never accept

Love me for things unknown
The parts of me that lie hidden
Underneath the rainbows and smiles
Things I am afraid disclose

Love me for my failures
When my heart calls out to you
Yet shrinks back in fear
Because it recognises its ugliness

Love me in spite of
My brokenness
My neediness
My hopelessness

When I am unlovable
That is when I need you to love me most

Love me.
