Acknowledge my own culpability

I knew
I knew it would be complicated going in
I knew that the road was treacherous
I knew that it could hurt
I knew all this
And still
I took the chance regardless the possibilities
I took your words into my heart
I took steps towards you
I took this agony
And still
I wait, despite the pain in my heart and head
I wait, in this dark silence of screams
I wait, knowing your hearts worth
I wait, I am your person

I do not walk away

    Opening up our hearts is always a risk…. I’m sorry you are hurting my friend ❤

      It has to be a risk. We never know what’s in another’s heart until we expose our own. Someone has to take the first risk.
