if

If I couldn’t love you now,
would you hate me later?

If today never comes,
would you still show me a brighter tomorrow?

If I never say hello,
would you ever say good-bye?

THIS PLACE

My mind is in this place,
in a place where my heart longs
to be.
At this place,
there’s unconditional & everlasting love
with no boundaries or limitations.
My mind frequently visits
and my heart
has yet to go.
I’ve tried to get my heart there
but she stays where she is.
I say, I’ll give her time to
catch up with my mind.
And just when I think
they’re there,
my heart changes her mind.
When I ask her why?
She replies,
I’m scared, of the hurt
caused by lies that abuse my
emotions but most importantly,
I’m scared of not being
loved back.
My mind tells her,
there’s nothing to be scared of.
She says,
if I can’t trust you,
then how can I trust,
this place?
