Fear TKO’d Love

Credit: Printeboek

I remember when…

Daily poems sprung forth from my heart

Fueled by the love that only you could create in me

I can recall…

The butterflies that kept my eyes pointed down but my heart was lifted up

I couldn’t prevent…

Waking up, smiling, and instantly thinking of you as a sweet prayer of thanks graced my lips

It wasn’t until…

Love got real. For. Us. Both.

The day that…

Your fear trumped us both as you guarded your present and future from what happened in your past

The tears I shed…

Were nothing compared to the pain I felt and sometimes still feel

If only you…

Would have conquered what you knew was starting to heal

But instead…

You chose your story of pain

It’s now…

Been five years and still you’re clutching

It was I…

Who wrote a new path because no longer could I drown with you in sorrow and lies

Every night I…

Say a prayer for you in the hope that you find true healing and honor what you’re feeling

And even though…

My love is strong, I must keep moving along

So when the moments…

Are heavy on my mind, I capture it in a written line

And I write…

I write…

I wrote it…

The End.
