    If I could handle
    letting love back in
    you'd be that love
    truly undeserved
    you're like this life GOD gave
    I never earned it
    it fell in my lap
    I'm like a cracked windshield
    more damage I can not sustain
    I'm already toppling
    from doubt and pain
    you've helped me through much
    kisses healed 90%
    but 10% open flesh
    still exist
    warm words, almost usher me back in
    voices tell me "Love is no friend"
    at least not mine
    we're at odds all the time
    two different pages
    my page stained with tears
    insecurity, uncertainty
    a heart full of fear
    now the damage that has
    caused me to hesitate
    could damage me once again
    if your love can not wait

    Understanding this need not to be hurt again even though it seems right. I liked this flow.

    I guess that just proves the old song right: "LOVE DON'T LOVE NOBODY"
    Cherish your heart and protect it always. that was a good piece

    this was quite moving Kente...
    I understand...sometimes those
    kisses can't heal all 100% of the
    scars but when "it's the right time"...
    the door will open on its own...
    the one that leads straight to your
    heart & soul...feeling it!
