Loved You Anyway

I would have loved you anyway. 

Even if you gave me no reason at all.

Should I have known better?

You gave me no reason to fall.

I can’t forget. Do memories ever fade?

Why did you you put up a wall? I just wanted to know you. 

Were you afraid? 

Funny—I was too. 

I guess it doesn’t matter now. 

I would have given everything. 

Best to not say the truth aloud. 

I loved you though you couldn’t love me.

Fear is a funny thing.

Maybe it’s good we were both afraid. 

You would have ruined me—

I would have loved you anyway.
