Love Blossoms

I cannot promise

passion will not

lead to pain.

I cannot tell you

I will never

make mistakes.

But I can say

that who you are

won’t make me run away.

I can handle you;

I see the brokenness

and when I do

I just want to

hold you tighter.

Are you going to

give up

before you even try?

I am strong enough

to keep you together,

I am strong enough

for the both of us.

Don’t you dare think

you can fail me.

I care about you too much

to let you go

without a fight.

Stop being so afraid

of love.

It’s brutal and raw;

but it cures all.

It’s worth it.

That I can promise you.
