Have I Ever Been In Love?

One of the first questions you are asked when getting to know someone;
Have you ever been in love?
And your answer;
Yes, but love is a story for another time.
Is it that time?
Perhaps.
I have been in love.
Painful love.
Unrequited.
Full of lies.
Painful love.
Heart shattering,
Severely injured.
Painful recovery.
Long,
Painful recovery.
It cast a shadow upon my heart,
Clouded my mind.
Inflicted a numbness,
Restricted feeling.
I have not been in love since.
I have hurt others by recovering,
Others that I tried to love.
I could not.
I tried.
I failed.
I have to learn how to feel again,
How to love again.
I met you.
Whilst going through more pain,
Whilst hurting someone by recovering.
My aching smile has not ached with you.
You have made it easier to dust off my smile in the morning.
You have taught my heart how to palpitate again,
Taught my cheeks how to blush again,
All for the right reasons.
You have made it easier to dust off my smile in the morning.
You have taught me to smile a smile that is not forced.
You have done things to me that scare me more than ever,
Yet that relieve me.
You are teaching me to feel again.
You may be teaching me to love again.
Thank you for being such a good teacher.
