I Love

I Love

i love
that you’re frail
fickle and weak

i love that you’re flawed 
torn and scarred

i love 
that deep down inside
you’re scared

and vulnerable
to failure
and hurt

i love that you
break down
give up
and weep

i love
your fundamental fragility
and brokenness

and deep
heart-breaking sadness

i love
that all life long
you have longed, and longed
and longed

i love your striving
to become
braver and bigger
than you are

all this makes
so incredibly, unspeakably
beautiful to me
