I Want You When You’re Broken

I want you when you’re broken. When you’ve felt the crushing pain of a severed relationship, when you’ve barely made it through, scratching and kicking all the way to the other side.

I want you when you’ve tasted a love song gone sour, when you’ve given your all to something and fallen short, when you’ve felt defeat and loneliness and fear, when you know this life is painful and terrifying, yet you’re still fighting through, still looking for love.

I want you when you’re vulnerable, when you’re hesitant. When the ache of your past is still lingering, so you’re taking careful steps to me.

Trust me, I don’t want any of this to happen to you. But if it does, I want to be the one you fall for afterwards. I want to be the reason you trust again, the hands that hold your heart like its precious, the smile that warms your fragile soul. I want to be the one that mends and soothes and comforts, the one who makes you believe in love again, shows you how powerful a kiss can be.

I want to lift you when your spirits are low. I want to love every broken piece of you, heal you with gentle touches and faithful kisses and a heart that treasures you more than you’ve ever been. I know I cannot fix you, cannot make you whole. But I can make you believe. And I want that.

I want you to let go of fear, let go over everyone who has hardened your heart, and fall into me. I want you to know that you are capable of loving, that we are capable of becoming something beautiful, and you shouldn’t be afraid.

I want you when you’re broken because I know how it feels to be there. Because I’ve tasted loneliness, bitter and harsh on my own tongue. Because I’ve teetered on the edge of giving up. Because I’ve loved and been loved so beautifully when I didn’t think I had the power to believe again.

So please don’t withhold your heart just because you’re hurting. The world is filled with broken people and we are all still lovely, still capable of wonderful things. Know that you are wanted, even at your lowest. Yes, I want you at that point. And I want to bring you up, to rise with you, together and new. TC mark
