So this is how it feels.

Love and Hope

So this is how it feels,

To love and be loved back.

Each emotion slowly returning,

Fixing my heart's cracks.

I feel as though i should cry...

Because I can't describe my feelings in words.

Each moment i am in his arm..

I fly as high as the most majestic of birds.

I hope he will not hurt me,

that he will hold me close,

The three words he rarely says,

Is what i long to hear most.

I can see in his eyes he feels how i do,

But I can never speak it out loud.

I feel like love may run away,

and shroud my days in clouds.

I long to hear his response,

Despite my darkest fears,

I haven't felt this sort of way.

At least not for two years.

Before i even think it through i say the words,

Whispering as he he holds me close "I love you.."

I hold my breath and don't let it go,

Even after he says "I love you too."


Author's Notes/Comments: 

This is how i guess it feels to be in love. I haven't felt this way in 2 years.

Best thing is learn to let it

Best thing is learn to let it flow. "The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for."
-Bob Marley-

...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "
