lessons i have learned the hard way
i have lost so many beautiful kinds of love by trying to make them into the only kind of love i thought i understood clearly. i warped them because i couldn't accept them as they were.
i can't go back and change the past, can't undo the mistakes i have made, but i will carry this lesson with me. i will accept love as it is given, i will try not to need to give it a name.
