And just for thought...
Your heart amazes me more every day,
the way your soul wants to cradle the world,
making mine feel small, selfish but I would give you all of me.
Time after time you open your arms while I tend to shy away.
I flinch at a touch, retreat at the sight because the world still frightens me.
I would jump from the skies for you and I know you would catch me
even if I broke every part of you.
You would still be there even if I never came back down.
You catch the world's tears, wiping away all the pain
while I hide inside myself, holding tight to my skepticism.
You see the good in the dirt around you but sometimes all I can see is dirt.
You look at me and I wish to be as good as what you see.
I wish to be as open, as loving, as forgiving as that reflection in your eyes
but we both know too many thorns have pricked.
Sometimes I fall flat.
You have my heart to break but I know you never will.
And while I have aspirations of becoming a rainbow,
you are content to stay on the ground, guarding the pot of gold you already think I am.
I have always had the wings to fly but you were the wind I needed to take off.
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.
