One. Sometimes love will move so slowly
you will stop waiting for its arrival. You will become an
open bar and you will be drained and drained until one
day you open the door to let last night out and love has
left a calling card on the doormat.

Be patient. Let love come to you piece by piece
until you are full to the brim with it.

Two. Some days it will feel
like love has come for you with a wildfire
at its heels. Let it come; you were
meant to burn brighter than any sun or
star we care to name.

Three. Growing back after burning down
is a sign to leave old loves behind. Let them
go kindly. Wrap them up in tissue paper and
ribbon and give them a kiss goodbye. Be gentle but
firm.

Do not use maybe. Do not look back.

Four. Love can hurt and you will let it
because you are in love. It will spit venom and
throw fists until you stand up and throw
something back.

Be strong, letting love go is not
weakness.

Five. Love will sometimes be too much.
It will let you build a fire in its ribcage and trust
you not to burn it down. Do not resent it. Instead, leave the matches
on the kitchen table when you leave.

You do not need to be anyone's salvation.

Six. By the time you are ready,
love has cracked your chest open rib by rib and
studied exactly how your heart beats and exactly
how it doesn't.

It can hurt,
but you will still know
how to love.
This is messy and horrible and I might tidy it up but I am also messy and horrible so I might not.

Love can be messy and horrible, but it can also leave you wiser and better for the hurt. :heart: this is beautiful in its honesty.
