when you choose to love someone
you will have to reach
to stretch yourself past your comforts
your practiced expectations
your walls and barriers. . .

while they may be another part of you
they are not you
and must be respected as such

embrace the knowns and the unknowns
for nothing else defines a life well lived

if you must control anything
control your fears
by letting them go

love is here to challenge, to break open,
to heal and make genuine

trust it
