Fell in love

I fell in love with the most courageous person…
Who laughed too much,
And cried too little,
Who seeked adventure,
And stories to tell..
Looked for love,
Her prince of Wales..
Was brave and kind,
Of brilliant mind
Was flawed at times,
But knew her rhymes
Endlessly searching..
Hopelessly lurking..
I fell in love with



It is bruises I see,
A black eye
A controlling stare

A ‘fall down the stairs’ you say…
You avert your eyes,
Don’t you dare

“He loves me,” you yell,
He can’t control his fist

But “I love you,” I yell,
I cannot see you LIKE THIS
