Lover

by Kristina

I have always loved harder than words permit

Since I was a little girl, I have felt like this

I was strong in situations beyond my own ability

But with matters of the heart, came endless fragility

Is it my ever increasing desire to know

To connect and repair others

Do I believe my soul is the only source

Of recourse in which they can recover

I have always felt deeper than the oceans span

I have been called crazy for this, maybe I am

Maybe the world needs a little crazy like me

Someone to offer the unexplained

The indescribable flux of black and white

Up and down, utter bliss and extreme pain

For how boring would life really be

Without chaos, without magic, without wonder

I have always known and felt these things

For I have always been a lover
