Love Letter to a Man
To whom are you trying to prove yourself
and to what purpose are your struggles?
Is it easier to fight for strange dreams,
to run across the world,
to bathe your wounds with the sweat of your brow
than to admit that you love me,
that you hold me in such high regard
that you fear you will never be enough?
If you value my qualities so well,
then can you not trust
that I possess the virtue to love you well-
penniless, unskilled and unrefined
as you view your own wild hear to be?
You are a treasure
that I never could let go.
