Love Hurts


How did you become unavailable?

Too scared to let anyone close.

Love is about taking chances,

risking everything on a whim,

just in case the right one wins.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained,

means we sometimes endure pain.

Nevertheless the heart is strong,

eventually recovering to move on.

Closing that door firmly shut,

may mean to others you cut off.

Life will send us much distraction,

leaving us carelessly out of action.

Love is truly worth the turbulent battle,

lest you meet the one with whom to settle.
