For Women Who Are Difficult To Love

This is the title of a poem by the Somali-born, London-based poet, Warsan Shire.
"And if he wants to leave, let him leave. You are terrifying and strange and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love."
This line struck me to my core. With great expectations, come great disappointments. The reason why you can't make homes out of human beings.

It's amazing how my heart is still capable of loving someone so deeply after being broken so many times.
