Only the brave

I said to him, “I don’t think you should read my poetry. I’m far too passionate and intense for most people. I may scare you away like the rest. I’m raw and honest and I don’t pull any punches.”
He said, “I know you are very passionate and that’s what makes you so incredible. And as far as scaring everyone away…they’re all a bunch of cowards. Do you really want to be with someone who isn’t brave enough to let themselves feel you? Someone too cowardly to fall in love with you?”
Then it hit me. I was feeling sad for myself that I was something to run from; when all along, I am just that girl in the tower that only the bravest would attempt to love.
And the truth of that from his lips hit me like an iceberg. And I drowned in his sincerity and his courage.
