Patience

Can you
be more than temporary?

Can you walk around my insecurities,
climb my walls and wait for me?

***

I know
broken hearts take time to heal.

I have been made to feel pain,
so I can understand being afraid.

***

Can you
be different from the rest
and give me a semblance of real love?

I want to know what it feels like
to have someone see your imperfections and still choose you;
know your past and still want a future with you.

I want to know how it feels to have someone with it to work as much as I do,
and have the patience for it too.
