Young, Sweet, Sincere- Love.

Really wish it was easy as I thought,
And no matter how I fought…
I stood back and watched fall apart.

Family life was too much to bear.
Especially when he wasn’t there,
I was consumed by hurt and despair.

We left all that together;
To find a place that was better…
And the only thing I left was a little blue letter.

With no plans and glassy eyes,
I left them with no goodbyes;
 And we disappeared in the sunrise. 

Our future is blurry,
I wanted grow up in a hurry…
We left our safety for a place less sturdy.


With the scars I wear so well,
And all the low places that I fell.
All my stories I will tell.

With mistakes he made,
The games he played…
But I still stayed

Even though it’s not laid out in stone…
I am not afraid to go;
And wish I won’t be alone.

It’ll be okay if you’re alright
And we’re together day and night;
We’re young and know how to fight.

We’re not crazy,
Just lost in reality…
And just he completes me.

Young, sweet, sincere… love.

    Interesting thoughts that you have penned in this one...I feel that this is about two teens leaving home too soon to start a life of their own..Keep the creative pen flowing..Sara
