You’re afraid to love her because you know she’d be good for you.

You’re afraid to love her because across the board she’s everything you want that you’re afraid to admit you need.

You’re afraid to need someone like that.

You’re afraid to love her because she doesn’t play that game everyone else does.

Her blunt honesty and forward nature is something you’ve been taught to fear.

You’re afraid to love her because you aren’t ready to heal yet. And her love is the type of that heals people.

You’re afraid to love her because you don’t want to lose someone like her if ever you did her wrong.

So you keep her close.

You’re afraid to love her because you aren’t ready to meet the right one yet.

Even though in your heart you know she might be.

So you date others and do your own thing.

But what you’ll come to find is it will be in everyone you look for her and she won’t be found.

You’re afraid to love her because you know she’s not like the rest of them.

You’re afraid to love her because you know she already loves you without needing it to be reciprocated.

That kind of selflessness in a world full of people demanding so much of you is something you fear.

You’re afraid to love her because she loves you to the core of who you are and accepts it.

You’re afraid to love her because you don’t want to disappoint her when she finds out who you really are.

But in your heart, you know even that part of yourself she’d love too. And that’s what you fear.

You’re afraid to love her but I know she’s the one that’s keeping you up at night.

You’re afraid to love her but I know you see her face when you listen to certain songs.

You’re afraid to love her but I know you think of her every time you’ve had one drink too many.

You’re afraid to love her because you know her value and you know her worth.

The truth is I don’t think you’re afraid to love her at all. I think you already do and that’s what scares you. TC mark

Kirsten Corley

Kirsten is the author of But Before You Leave, a book of poetry about the experiences we struggle to put into words.

But Before You Leave

“Losing you would be like losing part of me, only it’d be losing the best part of me.”

“Even if your voice is shaking, never stop asking for what you want.”

Kirsten’s writings really touch me. It’s like all the things I have ever thought of or wanted to say are expressed through her writing. I resonate with so much of it. It’s so deeply touching, moving, raw and just plain real. There were times reading I teared up because something said just went straight to my heart. I think I honestly highlighted almost the whole book! —Elizabeth
