Why I Love You

You’ve ignited the fire long suppressed within my core
Recovered the since been abandoned personality of my youth
Become a constant in my tortured world of unwelcomed change
Pressured my close-minded thoughts into the space outside of the box

I do not Love many people
Often a time the word is degraded in meaning
By those whom lack knowledge of the full extent of its power
Casually thrown around in daily conversations not worthy of its use

You’ve inspired my growth with your unexplainable acts
Brought light to what I thought I could only know as dark
Treated my stubbornness with nothing shy of tender, loving care
Caused a flutter in my once steady heart beat

Love makes me uncomfortable
Creating sheer vulnerability for the brave soul who announces it 
Rejection being an ever so present thought in the back of their lost mind
A fragile, delicate word holding the weight of the world

You’ve walked your way into my hell of a life
Willingly devoting yourself to the building of US
Undeniably changing my outlook for the better
Picking me up every time I fell 

Love should be used with discretion
Only spoken if absolutely certain
And on this occasion you’ve been the reason for my decisiveness
So, that is why I Love You
