Falling in Love Poem

Believing In Love Again

My whole life has been a rollercoaster. I've fought through depression, being sexually assaulted, and a million other things. I got better, but I completely had given up on love. I no longer believed that anyone could love me, I thought I was far too damaged. But someone came along and showed me the true meaning of love, and I suddenly found myself singing in the shower again. I realized that everyone can have their own little fairytale; you just have to wait for it. :)

My Own Little Love Story

All I used to feel was blue.
I used to think love itself was a lie
because of all of the fires I walked through
and all the tears that I cried.

I used to be quite the stubborn one.
I suppose in a lot of ways I still am.
But I used to hide my heart away from the sun,
because I was scared of getting burned all over again.

I used to swear love just wasn't worth the fight.
No one would love me; I was far too blue.
You'd think there's no changing that, right?
But then...my love...there was you.

You made me feel like I was more than enough.
You turned my heart into a lilac purple sky.
The cage around my heart was much too tough,
but I suppose the key was hidden in your eyes.

This fairytale of you and I has not been traditional.
Let's be honest, it's been a hot mess.
But the love that I have for you is unconditional;
and nothing has ever made my heart beat for you any less.

What we have here will one day be quite the story,
and there's no complaints here from me.
So don't you run and don't you worry,
because you'll always be my cup of tea.
