Don’t Hide From Me

You asked me to love you with all that I could. I reached within myself and did just that- I loved you with my heart, my soul; with every fiber of my body, every part of my being. I poured myself out to you with depth even I didn’t know I was capable of. You were mine and I was yours.

In return, I asked only that you cradle my heart and keep it safe. Don’t play with it. Don’t break it.

You did worse. You hid it and pretended it wasn’t there. You resisted me. You said you didn’t ask for so much. You punished me with your silence and your ignorance.

You are afraid. You are afraid I am asking too much of you, that I am demanding more than you are capable of by loving you so fully.

You withdraw.  I am not the enemy.
