All the moments

I will love you
In all the moments,
Even those
Inbetween, the ones
Where my own fears
Reside and shame
Stands accusing,
You have been
Here before
And drenched in
Fight or flight mode
My inner child screams
Leave;
Now,
Burn before
You get burnt;
Even in those,
I will nurture my
Resolve:
and love you
In all these moments,
Because you gave
My inner child
A home.

For a while

I’ll only be yours for a while
And just when you think
You have me, own me
I’ll recoil and make you wonder
If you ever did.
I’ll only be yours for a while
And just when you think
You know me, understand me,
I’ll surprise you and make you wonder
If you ever did.
Sad as it may be,
This is love for me
(And all the while
Fear makes you blind to see:
I am yours into eternity).
