Love - Poem by Krystal Massey

Love can be
as destructive as hate.
You love someone
and you are like a bird
soaring through the sunny skies
without a care,
not even having to flap your wings.

What happens when your beloved
doesn't love you back
or loves someone else?
In order to stay amongst the clouds
you have to flap your wings.
Instead you give up.
You fold your wings
and tumble toward the earth,
unable and unwilling to save yourself.

If the person loves you only as a friend
you fight against the wind and turbulence,
but your wings are weary.
You are not happy and your heart suffers,
but you continue to fly
only so that you can be there for your beloved.

When you, however, are in love
the skies are clear.
You don't feel the need to give up.
You have to work to stay in the sky,
but you are ecstatic to have that job.
When you have fallen so deeply in love
you don't want to come back down.

I choose to stay in the sky.
This is where you are.
I trust you to keep me here.
