Let it be love.

I know

But will I ever learn

That love is not meant to be protected

It is not meant to be stolen away and kept in a box

Safe from the elements

It is to be displayed

Proudly and yes, perhaps vulnerably

It is a light that needs space to shine;

It will keep shining

Brighter and brighter

Like a goldfish, it grows to suit its home

Or shrinks

So let it grow

Open the box

Unfold the thing you've kept so neatly

And let it spread

Let it offer warmth

Let it be love.
