The Love She Carried


The love she carried was just so devastating,

she was afraid

of losing herself,

hair a mess

fake eyelash falling,

who was she now?

yet he never took from her,

he only gave,

and gave again,

and again and


He simply gave to her.

    1. I thought of something else – maybe she was not depressed but had never experienced love like this before and she realized she was falling in love too, because of the wonderful way he treated her. In this case she was scared of love but eventually she came around. And devastated here perhaps means that her fear was breaking apart. She was beginning to learn what love was. 🙂
