Poetry & Art

when I believed in love

those nights
that you’re consumed by grief
when you ache to the core of your bones
no one comes to save you
you gasp for air between tears
that fall harder than rain
you beg the universe to take it back
to bring them back
you feel weak for wanting something
it’s like part of you is missing
you’ll never get it back
love like that strikes like lightening
never twice in the same place
on those nights
you’re brave
for loving so fiercely
that you opened your heart that much
that it could hurt so bad
you risked it all anyway
when you believed in love
