A battle of words between them
She felt her cold, hard heart had been revealed
She had told him all her opinions on love she had gathered over the years,
Saying them out loud for the first time.
Every relationship she had known ended badly
Her mother had four remarriages
But his mother, she had several more
She didnâ€™t believe there could be a happy ending or a forever in love
She truly believed love was a sham
Two outlooks on love and commitment entirely different
He wouldâ€™ve been there for the long haul
He had known that she and he were meant to be together
He just knew. From that first day he crashed into her.
He believed when love did work - it is amazing
And it was worth it.
She realized she had to take a chance
She had to take a leap of faith
For Love is never guaranteed
But as she discovers, you must take that risk,
The risk of letting go and giving into love
You canâ€™t deny yourself love
You canâ€™t hold yourself back from people b/c of fear
She had believed you have to protect yourself,
That you canâ€™t give yourself away to someone
She was not stronger as sheâ€™d believed
She was afraid of taking that chance
She was simply afraid....
You mustnâ€™t regret those failed relationships
You mustnâ€™t live on the outside
You must live and love, not just wonder
on the inside, what it would be like
Nice poem, I've felt like that, having seperated parents keeps me thinking that love or marrige can never lasts, but a part of me beleives, that if i find the rite guy for me...love would be everlasting...though I have douts=(
What true words. You have a very different style of poetry. Not one of real rhyming, but of something much greater--beautiful words that can reach deep inside and take some thought to deliver. awesome.
