Real Me…

I want…
Someone who is real
Someone who sees me
Someone who would rather deal with my crazy
Then look for someone easy

I need…
Someone who knows the truth
Someone who doesn’t need things to be explained
Someone who can knocks down my walls
Who really wants to

I don’t want…
Another failure
Another loss
Another break
More tears falling down my face

I don’t need…
My mistakes pointed out
My flaws flaunted in front of me
My heart stomped on
Shattered into bits

I want, I need someone to see… the real me.

That’s Not What’s Hard…

Love is not what is unattainable
What is unattainable is staying the same
Love isn’t something that is hard to get, or hard to earn
What is hard to get and earn is changing together for the better
Love comes with a price
The price is accepting the one you love for their flaws
For their mistakes
For their problems
Not many can do that
Falling in love is not what is hard

Staying in love is.
