Turns out it’s not enough to merely love someone
You have to hold their heart in your hands
And restrain yourself from crushing it to death
In the heat of many moments
Turns out loving someone takes patience
Many moons cannot withstand
Turns out loving you is costly
A price I never knew I couldn’t afford
Until I’d bankrupted myself for just a taste
Turns out love is a crushing blow
When it’s all you have to give
And there’s no reward for giving
