Phoenix

You are not ready for a love like hers.
She loves without limitation, hesitation, or reserve.
To love her is to know the most loyal and steadfast.

You are not ready for a love like hers.
She sees the tender core of you that yearns.
Her fingers trace the mossy mess of your scars
and fill instead each bruise with wonder.

You are not ready for a love like hers.
She knows your poet’s heart beneath the dust
of torched futures and past loves.
She breathes a mist of hope for new beginnings.

You are not ready for a love like hers.
She feels like home and tastes of fresh rain.
You know her by the mischief on her lips
and the soft scent of her embrace.

You are not ready for a love like hers.
But oh, you are so deserving.
