I hid from a boy I loved

Not in fear of him

But of the sight

Of my reflection in his eyes.

Though, it was I who couldn’t see clearly.

Soon, I realized

the nights I had prayed for love

God had answered me

over and over again

By sending me to myself.

But, I turned the girl away

time and time and

One day, I realized

if I, myself, will send me away

How must I expect someone else

to have me?

The boy had strayed,

As most do when you leave them

For too long,

But the girl, my relection,

remained by my side.

And with that, I began my first real

Commitment of love.

And hardship and heartache,

we’ve been together ever since.
