And If You Let Me, I’ll Love You At Your Worst

“I can’t tell you exactly how it will end, but I can tell you this when it begins, it will feel like rain and when it ends it’ll feel like fire. And the truth is we’re all beautifully mad enough to believe that maybe love was meant to save us from ourselves.” -R.M. Drake.

I think we’re all afraid of showing someone the worst sides to ourselves. We’re afraid of rejection, we’re afraid of vulnerability.

But if you let me, I’ll love you at your worst.

I’ll love when you don’t like the reflection you see looking back at you.

I’ll love you for the things you are insecure about.

I’ll love you through every fight.

I’ll love you through every breakdown.

I’ll love you through every tear, you hate shedding.

I’ll love you through every anxiety attack.

I’ll love you when you become that person, you don’t recognize drunk.

I’ll love you when you push me away.

I’ll love you when you don’t understand.

I promise to love you at your worst. And with that it’ll heighten everything that is it’s best.

Because even at your worst, you’re beautiful.

Even those moments you hate yourself, I promise I won’t.

I’ll love you through the anger.

I’ll love you through the confusion.

I’ll love you for the past and accept it, as you haven’t yourself.

And even more for the future that may be uncertain.

I love you for the things you are. I love you too for the things you aren’t.

And if you let me I’ll love this way forever.

I’ll love until our wrinkles age together and we envy our youth.

I’ll love you for every memory that is imprinted in my heart.

I’ll love you for your quirks.

I’ll love you for your flaws.

I’ll love you for it all, if you dare let me.

Because when I look at you I see perfection, despite the flaws that prevail.

Because when I look at you I see the person you inspire me to be.

Because when I look at you, I’m happy to be alive.

So I’ll love you through it all, even in those moments you don’t love yourself.

And if you let me, I’d like to love you like that forever.

My name is Kirsten Corley. Both writer by day, hopeless romantic by night live my life with a simple motto. "What can I do for you?" I believe our lives are only as good as the people who's lives you make better. I strive to help readers gain an understanding of intense emotions, like heartbreak and getting through it. I think together we have the ability to overcome the challenges life throws our way and even in those times you hit rock bottom, I see it as a wonderful platform to begin again.

  1. These times are few and far between, the values of this seems rare. People out there say they believe, and Preach their moral views. But when it’s their time and there are in the situation, all that preaching go’s out the window. They love the ideal world, but just won’t live it. The things people do for show..

  2. I have loved someone when they were at their worst and I have given them my best…. People are mostly at their worst when circumstances are not in their favour, but I believe what tends to happen is that when people get over their worst , they walk away because they don’t want any reminders of the past…. Including someone who has seen their worst…..

  3. I don’t it’s so much a person being backwards. I think it’s more that people aren’t forwards enough. That’s what makes us miss out and become the depressed society that we are. Everyone’s afraid of being free in a free country! Hurry up now and take your freedom while it’s still there!
