“Too Much Love” by Tracey Hill


Don’t be afraid
My love won’t hurt you or did you already know?

Did you already know that once I commit to you
I’ll never let you go?

Did you feel in your heart I would hold on to you
For breath and life?

Could you detect that my love was so fulfilling
There would be no room for division or strife?
Could you tell that I’ve been hurt too much to hurt you?

Did you realize that I’ve been cheated on
For so long that I am incapable
Of unfaithfulness or otherwise doing you, a true love, wrong?

You must have.
I offer too much stability…and that’s why you’re gone.
