A Letter to my Lover

I allowed you into my life without a moments hesitation,
some said that it happened to soon but as I took a second glance at you,
I knew if I didn’t take the leap I would be left a fool.

Life has plagued me with a past of bitter resolutions,
allowing myself to love so hard,
that had failed me and left me falling way way too far.

From there I left my heart in a box of restraints,
still able to feel but unable to remove this emotional shield.

I found you so effortlessly,
It was as if life has finally lifted this curse of love loss,
to a love at all costs.

But as love goes,
it isn’t as easy as the movies make it all seem.
The love I felt is no match for the love I now feel,
I must work hard to take care of the one that makes life feel so damn real.

I took for granted my curse that was lifted,
not noticing my mentality had not yet shifted,
still concealing my emotions for preparation of an impending devastation.

This devastation has not yet come and now see that this true love waysomething I must not prepare to run,
but something I must seize and cherish,
much like the morning sun,
keeping me captivated and breathless.

It has been so hard to realize that someone has loved me the way that you do,
now i see the error of my ways,
helping me see that I must become someone new with you.

I love you, Emma
