Chill, Fever

love is patient
and kind;
this is true.
it does not envy
nor boast;
also true.
but love is also
acceptance.
of your faults.
of your dreams.
of the person you want to be.
if you ever have to hide
the person you are
or the things that bring you happiness
for the sake of someone else;
that is not love.
the right person
will never have you walking on eggshells
around them.
no,
the right person
will be right there,
loving you in the midst of your mess
because you love them in the midst
of theirs.

you should never have to hide
the person you are
to be loveable
to someone else.

you are worthy of love
that does not need
to be fettered by the chains
of fear
of guilt
of shame.
