Ready and Waiting to Fall

My knees are scarred
my eyes are bloodshot
my heart bruised.

But I’m picking myself up
once more.

All I can do is try again
and hope I will succeed
the next time.

There is nothing more beautiful
than falling in love.

And I can’t wait to feel it
for the last time
until the rest of my days.

Nothing makes you feel more alive
than having someone
to share life with forever.

And when I find it,
I will know
all the heartache was
worth it.
