Hindering Baggage

You are an embodiment of one of my biggest fears,

That if I took a leap for a love I want, that I need,

That I KNOW I deserve and that I feel is true,

The woman I love would break my heart the first chance she gets,

And as I move on I bring you with me and hindering baggage,

Sometimes I might tell myself true love no longer exists,

It's a story, fairy tale, an unforgotten myth,

But I can't deny that love still lives,

Although it was weakened by fear, it still lives in me,

And so now I fight with ever last ounce of love in me,

For what I want, what I NEED, what I DESERVE.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

On my last heartbreak, which has taken me too many ages to get over.
