Hugo got it right

“The greatest happiness in life is the conviction that we are loved – loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.”
Victor Hugo

And you will find
That you still love her
After you have stood
In her shadows
After everything else
You will still pursue her
And your fear will
Be letting her down
You will find
That the scar on her leg is still sexy
After you know it’s story
Her eyes will still stop you
After you’ve kissed their tears
You will still pull her voice
Out of a crowd
After she’s yelled at you
Being vulnerable
Being close
Being real
Will change you
That’s what you will find
It breaks you
it changes you
But you also find
That you were never awake
Looking at her is like waking up
It’s worth it .
A thousand times over .
So do what you will
But my god.
You’re nothing
Until you’re real .
