For My Love


How can I hope to hide
From memories and pain that I keep inside?
How can I hope to let it go
When I try to talk and my throat turns to stone?
I can see it in your eyes
When I hurt and it makes you cry
Do you know you're my only saving grace?
I see redemption when I look at your beautiful face
You are my soul outside my body, my heart outside my chest
I feel so ashamed to let you see the parts that aren't my best
When you asked what you could do I told you 'Nothing' but that wasn't right.
You can stay with me here and let me hold you tight.

    How can I hope to hide
    From memories and pain that I keep inside?
    How can I hope to let it go
    When I try to talk and my throat turns to stone?
    -And-
    You are my soul outside my body, my heart outside my chest
    I feel so ashamed to let you see the parts that aren't my best

    Beautiful and raw. Wholeheartedly and honestly relatable. Brilliant. (Report) Reply

    Just what I would die to hear a woman say in subdued light. Straight from the heart and romantic. Write on, especially with rhymes. (Report) Reply

    It's a sweet poem.
    Being in love is heavenly, and these feelings come when one is 'in love':
    'You are my soul outside my body, my heart outside my chest
    I feel so ashamed to let you see the parts that aren't my best' (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
