How to love a woman (3/3)

Part 2: https://toofarfromthesun.blog/?p=1296

If you’re going to love me,

You’re going to have to be patient.

Patient with how I fall for you

Because so many times I have fallen

And broken.

But when I do fall for you

I will fall past the many layers

Of dirt and soot,

Roots and rocks

pain and fear

To the molten core of this Earth

And I will love you from there

And through the sky.

If you’re going to love me,

Don’t leave me crying in the dark.

Instead, sit beside me and simply be

And I will love you for it.

Don’t leave me wondering

For so many painful nights

Don’t make me a question,

Don’t make me defend you

To the people who love me.

If you’re going to love me

You need to understand

That I love me,

And I love me too much

To watch myself suffer.

They say when a man leaves

He goes quickly but comes back,

When a woman leaves

She has been waiting for far too long

But when the last straw is broken,

she’s gone.

If you’re going to love me,

You will love bright, dangerous fire

And soft, deep sea.

Many are too scared

To drown or burn.

But if you can be brave,

You can stand with me.
