When you tell someone you love them you let a piece of yourself go.
Your heart used to just be yours but now its beating harder
because its working overtime to also work for the person you love
You trust them to watch over it as carefully as you have
Your mom tells you,
“Now don’t go giving that away too easy I worked nine months keeping you safe and have spent every second after that worried you will give it away you easy”
You were taught at a young age to love everyone but how do you know when you are strong enough to give away a piece of your heart and tell someone you love them.
People say you can’t die from a broken heart but it doesn’t work the same anymore if someone uses it and returns it damaged
What they don’t tell you is how amazing it can feel when you tell someone you love them and they don’t break you.
You can fix anything with tape and glue just not your heart, so protect it a little harder because glue doesn’t mend a broken heart
Sometimes you have to get broken to learn how it feels to be whole again
No one can explain the feeling of being loved back,
Except for the butterflies that fill your stomach
Your hands that were once cold are warm
Your legs get a little shaky
Being loved can make you feel alive after being broken for so long
