#PoetryLovers: The L Word

The L Word

An emotion often misunderstood and ends up creating something no good,

Yet makes you feel good when you know it’s genuine,

It’s hard to let go even though you know you have to,

And the withdrawal is what you concede defeat to,

But what do you do when it comes back and finds you?

From someone of the past or from someone new,

And all you you can think about is the damage it can do,

Regardless how you look at it you know it’s true,

But as time goes by it starts to grow on you,

And you say you’re not going to act like you used to,

Just to protect your heart from the emptiness you felt once before,

But in life you have to open new doors,

And explore the new things the L word brings,

Because what fails the first time and maybe a second and a third,

You deserve what is real and nothing less,

Time will heal and you’ll find someone that will make you want to express real love.
