Love Always Reigns


I hold my breath and feel the burn
that fills my chest and makes it yearn
afraid to breathe, afraid to feel
afraid to acknowledge that all-encompassing need
but I can only hold my breath for so long
before my chest bursts and greedily fills with a song

as I deeply inhale the sweet scent of his skin
and embrace his warm touch, as my heart blossoms and sings
but as I feared, he gently pulls his hand away
and leaves me with the memory of yesterday
should I live in fear and hold my breath once more
afraid to hurt so I cover my heart in armour
but why run from love, when it’s all in vain
you can try to hide, but love always reigns.
