I've never believed in love.
Never found it possible,
Never found it satisfying,
Perhaps I was too naïve,
Too confused,
Too scared.
Or perhaps all three.

But things are different now,
I've found something wild,
Untamed and
I am unsure when I stumbled upon it,
Or when your eyes first met mine.

All I know now is this is real.
Sweet and pure.
Like fresh honey.
Sometimes, a person has to
Endure some bees,
Get stung a little,
To reach something worthwhile.

A person has to walk through a desert
To reach their ocean.
One has to fall a little,
Before they can fly.
Yet everyone has to fight a little,
In order to die.

I never believed in love.
Never found it reachable,
Never found it fulfilling,
Maybe I was childish,
Or too naïve, or too scared,
Probably all three.
But not anymore,
Because you've changed me.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Oh My! WOW This is really good, I love the examples that you put in and how you started and ended, both were awesome,... Though I must say I still can't pretty much believe in it, but that's just me LOL... This poem is Amazing.
