let the love in

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
