Love is something that everyone wants and needs-

Whether they like it or not.

It's just all the steps taken before you find it that tell you otherwise.

It's said that nothing lasts forever,

Which is when I consider the chill of solitary.

No one wants to be alone

And it is all you can do to protect yourself

Because once you've been hurt by someone you both loved and trusted,

Solitary doesn't feel so wrong

And sometimes even comforting.

But it's times like these,

Here with you

That helps build the strength

To get past the past

And look ahead like there was never any hurt.
