Learning How to Love

Love Blossoms

It's been less than a month
but I can't remember life before you
nor do I want to picture life without you.


I don't know how we got here so fast;
must have been because of me
and my lead foot.


I never know when to slow down
and that's why
I always crash and burn in the end.


But even if I'm totaled-
heart beyond repair-
it will be worth it.


You've taught me so much:
how to accept myself,
how to make peace with my pain.


You showed me happiness
I didn't know was possible;
I've never smiled so much.


You made me learn how to love
without knowing what
it felt like to fall.
