I Can’t Get Over The Broken Path That Lead Me To You

Poetry is something that is special and dear to everyone whether they’re willing to admit it or not. I wrote a poem about the broken path that lead me to you, and it will forever be near and dear to my heart. Without further ado, here is “The Broken Path That Lead Me To You”:

You say, “I’m difficult to deal with..”

I say, “That’s fairly obvious..”

You don’t listen to half the words I say,

You ignore most texts and sometimes forget we were supposed to hang out that day,

I don’t even know if you know my favorite band’s name,

And yet, here I am waiting on your next move and this is where I plan to stay.

You say, “I have a lot of demons that you would have to deal with..”

I say, “Don’t we all?”

You forget that I have dealt with them too.

You think you’re the only one with problems or that has issues.

You feel like you’re alone on this one,

But babe, our challenges might not be the same, but we’re all going through things too.

You say, “I’m hard to love..”

I say, “I say I’ve found it fairly easy..”

Don’t get your hopes up, it’s not love just yet,

But I could maybe see it happening someday soon.

You’ve already cracked this icy shell of a heart that I never saw thawing again,

By just making it easy to want to be with you.

You say, “I’ve been broken in the past..”

I say, “I have been too..”

But the weirdest thing has happened..

I don’t feel broken anymore when I’m with you.

There is this trust that I have when you enter the room,

And I know that you won’t break me like she broke you two.

You say, “I don’t know why you’re still here..”

I say, “I don’t know why you’d think I’d leave..”

Sometimes we have to let down our walls,

To see who is willing to climb over them.

Sometimes we have to be up for the challenge and keep fighting to break them down,

Hoping one day that person see that there is no need for the guard, or the lock and key.

You say, “I don’t know if you’re going to be able to handle this..”

I say, “I don’t know why you’re overthinking..”

Let’s forget about the future and take this day by day,

Let’s forget about what could happen and not let this get in the way.

Let’s keep this good feeling going and let’s make it last,

Let’s focus on the present and forget about our pasts.

You said to me, “I don’t know why you care..”

I said, “I don’t know why I wouldn’t..”

Because there is so much more to love about you than to hate.

You’re able to give so much more than you take.

You’re something different than all the rest,

You think your choices have made you a failure, but I don’t look at you any less.

You say, “This isn’t going to be easy..”

I say, “The best things never are..”

That’s what makes them so great,

They are worth the wait and exceed most expectations that we have had for them so far.

I’ve got this good feeling about you and feel better about my past,

Not even caring if we’re rushing into this too fast or even thinking this might possibly not last.

You say, “I believe that people come into our lives for a reason..”

I say, “I firmly believe that too..”

We learn from our mistakes and the people that have broken us.

We learn to live with the pain and move on from those who didn’t see our views.

We learn to pick ourselves back up and find happiness in someone else once again.

If things didn’t happen for a reason, my broken path wouldn’t have pushed me in a direction that lead me right to you.
