Reasons Why I Stare at You


For Him

Maybe I can't stop looking at you
because I can't believe you are real
I spent a while wondering
If this was something I would be able to feel
I have been broken for a while
unable to heal
Now suddenly I see hope in your eyes
and now I don't cry myself to sleep at night
I don't wake up in a fright
feeling alone in the middle of the night
So many nights I wanted to die
Now I've never felt more alive
part of me is scared to take this dive
because I have been shattered into a million peices
you are the reason I am putting them back together
Love is a scary thing
because you fall in deep
sometimes it leaves you happy
sometimes it makes you weep

This is painful and yet beautiful truth of what it takes to be brave after having a broken heart. Taking the dive is exhilarating and scary. This poem is well done. :)

Love and heartbreak are probably the most written about subjects in poetry. Good one here.
