Love found you cowering in a corner. Take my hand, it says. I’m sorry I kept you waiting. You can’t recognize it. It’s so unfamiliar but so beautiful you can’t ignore it.
Love found you running reckless. Slow down, it says. Let me show you a real adventure. You say you don’t have time. But love is at your heels; keeping up with your pace. You take its hand–run with me.
Love found you clawing at your at your inner walls. Stop, it says. Don’t hurt yourself. Let me heal you. You’re desperate for a cure. You’re tired of the placebo pills. I can be your medicine, love says.
Love found you hiding behind a wall. Let me in, it asks. You refuse. You tell it to go away. Last time it came knocking it broke you down. It took too much. But this time love knocks gently. It looks sincere and you’ve been walled in for so long.
Love found you staring right at it. I’ve been waiting for you to notice me, you say to each other.
(Go forth…fall in love)
