A Love Worth FIghting For
(for resister on St. Valentine’s Day)

all the disagreements
all the arguments
all the fights
all the bad blood spilled

it was all well worth it
and the next go round
will be worth it too
it’s just the pain of earning your love

all the stones thrown
all the insult upon injury
all the salt pushed into open wounds
all the old scars

to not suffer for this
would be to not understand it’s value
to not hurt for this
would make it disposable

all the dried blood stuck to gauze
all the choking from the fire
all the poison consumed
all the scabs picked clean

it was all well worth it
and the next go round
will be worth it too
it’s just the pain of earning your love

all the words forged into blades
all the tears shed
all the soreness from screaming
all the spent exhaustion

you make it all worth while
you can’t have something as valuable as a love like this
as a love like like yours as a love like ours
and not pay a higher price

– vagabond
