you look longingly into my irises and I blush
with hope you can't see into my darkest thoughts
because anxiety gets the better of me sometimes
making me question your ability to love me as I am
even when I don't want to get out of bed in the morning
or when the only emotion I feel is numbness
as I overthink things that have already passed;
things I couldn't control even if I tried.
when you hold me close to you all my worries slip away
in the safety net of your love -
I thank you for allowing me into your life (now my universe)
and loving me for the person inside.
Em, I totally understand this. You really need someone in your life who accepts you for you. In a good relationship it's all about acceptance and understanding and taking a person at their best and worse. These are the relationships dreams are made of. Well done my friend -hugs!
