I won’t fall in love, I said

I won’t like no one, I said.

I won’t feel so soft, I claimed.

Never again. I vowed.

Days along the line,

I prayed.

For God to be nice.

And help me be strong.

But that was my vice,

My strength.

I forgot the pain,

I stopped believing

It even ever existed.

And I looked East.

And I saw it.

The One.

I denied it.

The Pull.

But it was meant to be.

I let it in, I let it breathe.

I accepted it, I gave in.

Those earlier promises?

I let be.

I’ll never leave you, I said

I’ll always love you. I vowed.

You have conquered my heart.

And forever,

I’m yours.
