Sunflowers and Roses

Hurt people, hurt people, even when they care, but I will be here waiting, so love me if you dare. I know you are hurting and you’re scared to let me in, but pushing me away will leave us both broken in the end. The warmth that filled my heart when we were intertwined is starting to turn cold when you left without goodbye. I know that you are hurting and you’re scared to let me in but I love you for you, so love me if you dare.

The sunflowers and roses, that grew from my heart, are nothing more then thorns and stems now because when you said those hurtful things, even when you said nothing at all, they just wilted to the ground. I know hurt people hurt people but what we have is real, so please don’t throw it all away and love me if you dare.

I know your inner demons, the thoughts that race in your head; we talked about them for hours while lying in your bed. And I know that you are hurting cause I am hurting too and love is pretty scary especially when it’s new. I’m not asking you to jump right in, just take your time and ride the wave with me and what will be will be cause I know that you are hurting, which is why you’re hurting me but I’ve been here once before so this isn’t new to me.

Whether it’s just a deep friendship or possibly something more, the waves will sometimes get stormy but I’m ok with that; cause I know hurt people hurt people, we’ve all been there before, so whenever you are ready, just come knockin’ on my door.
