And just for thought...
I know I am ready to love like never before,
to lay down my heart without hesitation.
There is so much inside I long to give and so much I am ready to receive.
I can conquer the fear I own, the loneliness that plagues.
I can put myself on the line now.
I am ready to wake up next to a man's sweet face with no fear he won't be there.
There is an unbelievable sweetness inside me I am ready to share.
I am no longer coated with my shield of sarcasm, my barrier of skepticism.
A strange place for me to be after all the follies but it will no longer sour me.
I am ready to smile for him, laugh with him, to free my secrets I hold dear to him.
My tears can fall now and I won't be ashamed of my vulnerability, my humanity.
I am no longer ashamed to show everything I am.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
