To Learn to Love


I need to lean to love
Not that I can't
I just don't know how
When gentle hands love like knives
and too many promises fall flat
I think I've forgotten Forgotten the feel of an "I love you" without an if
Or as a start to manipulation
And I wish I could see love as it's told
As firework and warm bonfires
The summer sun and hot cocoa after a snowball fight
But after to many false promises and broken deals
Faith cast aside like lingerie
I'm scared to love
Scared to open myself to that sort of vulnerability
A place where you can truly hurt me
But when we cuddle after robotics
And make inside jokes with almost no context
I begin to wonder
Maybe you're worth the risk

I will admit this is for someone special. Unfortunately I don't think they want me to name them.
