sweet baby learn to let the love in
do not fret, do not stumble, I know your childhood convinced you that love is chaos in disguise
let it hold you and become undone
open up, let him dust your heart
let him take you apart, let love cradle you
in the event that he drops you, fall.
do not bottle up the pain, cry oceans and build a new world without him
you spent years without any love from yourself, you’ll be just fine without his sloppy excuse he deemed love.
learn to let the love in
do not stutter, do not hold back
tell him all your dreams are selfish and bright
tell him, although they hardly deserve it, the love for your parents will always remain
tell him about the stitches, the first time you saw snow
draw him your happiest memories
when he traces the scars, reassure him that is all they are now, scars
every love is unique. stop looking for him. stop waiting on him. his inability to love you is not contagious.
please, learn to let the love in
