We Are Happier Together

Though no one else remembers the past that scared our hearts
I know,
And you will never forget.
And that will be enough, I guess.
At least together we can have truth
Which no one else seems to share.
I know how you lived,
Alone, Broken, Lost
And I know you hate self pity.
You know me,
How I was never enough (or so I was told)
What does it matter if it was never true
When her ruler measures me still
We are both so damaged
You and I
Yet through the fragments
We found laughter in each other
Even if Laughter makes the sadness worse when
it inevitably comes
Just like it's so much darker when a light goes out
Than if it had never shone.
You toss your head and laugh
For that second I am with you,
Everything is perfect
We are happier together
We radiate light
Keeping sorrow and darkness at bay as long as we can
Hold tight; Against the shadows to this moment
And your breath
