Women Who Love Too Much – Poem by Younique




Before you we stand,

We who mastered the art of ignorance, passiveness and not just giving a ****

Yes, we grew in it, molded it, reflected it, perfected it till it became second skin

We were crippled for life

We loved and got our hearts snatched away

We became ghosts that wandered, shadows with no sense of being

We learnt to grow up and survive

Never to throw our hearts on the line again

We don’t kiss with our eyes closed

We never know what’s lurking within the shadows

We don’t fall blindly

We learnt never to throw caution to the wind so our lives are in constant battles to be won over lies and deception

Love has not been kind to us

So we fight


The women who have loved too much.
