You have to be willing to endure
the risks that accompany unguarded
vulnerability because the rewards
your heart may receive are far greater.
There’s just an immeasurable beauty
that comes with being unafraid
to throw caution to the wind and
simply follow the path love flows.
Interesting how we seem to find ourselves when we lose people.
Why do we find our rhythm at the end of relationships?
Because we also lose ourselves before losing that person.
The key is to never lose your rhythm while coexisting and it’s possible.
You just have hold onto you a bit harder than to you hold onto them.
My intuition tells me you won’t catch me if I fall for you.
Yet here I am with my feet even closer to the edge.
We always know but hope makes up try anyway.
Because the in between is worth the ending.
We intentionally took our time so our kisses
are full of tenderness and deep intimacy
instead of lust mixed with confusion.
Holding hands is now second nature and
random long hugs while waiting in a line
feels like we’re not even in this world
as we rest comfortably in the safety
we grew in the truth of each other.
I feel like I can remove my being,
place it in your hands and know without doubts
it will be absolutely safe there.
All my life I’ve been longing to rest in safety.
Exhausted from carrying around this heavy armor.
Afraid to reveal my fears, my truths, my joys
For fear of them not finding a safe place to land.
Until now, until you.
Though this may not be forever,
I’ll enjoy the much needed rest
the presence of you provides.
