I would rather have conflict than love. many times in my life I have had love and threw it away. Why? Because I fear intimacy. When I was younger so much was taken from me. I then decided to not allow that pain to come into my heart. As soon as I felt love was blooming I would nip it in the bud. I would salt the earth and allow nothing to grow. It was easier for me. How much of a fool I was. TO feel that pain was to knew love deeply. Now I can’t tell you what that feels like. I buried it so deep that I don’t know if I will ever find it again. I hope. I pray that some day I will know the feel of love again that deeply. Draw a heart and think about love today.
