Love Life Poems Logo

I've always chosen impossible relationships, knowing deep down that it could / would never work because of my fear of being hurt. I would give part of myself, but never completely & utterly surrender to that love. Then I met Martin (whom had similar commitment issues), we became friends and after 6 months realized we were falling for one another. This will be my first, "proper" relationship. We're both learning to trust & to give. I'm scared to death but I think he's worth the risk!

I look into your eyes
My heart starts to race
My breathing rapidly increases
My bodyís in a state
Yet Ö
Iím in heaven!

What is happening to me?
It feels as if I'm losing my mind
Do I take this chance at love?
Or do I run and hide?

Youíre in my thoughts day and night
Iím fighting these feelings with every ounce inside
Knowing very well that I have plenty to hide

But you see right through
No wall too thick or too tall
I feel vulnerable
I feel bare

How I long for your touch
For the taste of your luscious lips
For the safe haven you provide
When you wrap your arms around me

I am falling for you
Falling hard and fast
It feels as though Iím looking at this
From one dizzy height
A mixture of excitement & fear
Whenever you are near

Today Iím taking a stand
I will be brave and give love a chance
Despite the fear & uncertainty
I want to be a part of you
I want to be a part of your life

Here I am, take my hand
For I am fragile & scared
Iím putting all my trust in you
For I have fallen Ö
I have fallen for you!
