Romanticism influenced poem that deals with one's feelings of something that appears to be unattainable.
I want to let you in.
Why do want me?
I’m not nor have been worthy of you.
Love like yours could heal thousands.
I can’t believe that you love me,
The pain that others have caused,
Is what’s keeping me from you.
I can’t trust you,
I want to.
I want to know you,
And feel your warmth.
I love you and you love me,
But I can’t let go of the thought
That you’re not real.
I live everyday seeing how a real love like yours
Touches so many.
The warmth and acceptance I’m craving,
You’re the only one who can give it to me.
It’s an all-encompassing warmth.
I will have it,
I need to have it.
