I almost gave up
on finding love…
My heart was shattered
by so many pretenders,
by abandoners
and empty shells
who only wanted
to fill themselves.

And then you happened.

If I seem reluctant,
if my fears hold me
too tightly
when I only want
to love you…
Look on me
with eyes of mercy.

I am still learning.

I am still letting go
of everything
that pain once made me.

Have faith…
The sun will rise
one day
when I have successfully laid
every bit of the past
in an unmarked grave.

Right now, just love me…
Even if
part of my heart
is still partially
in pieces.
