As someone, who struggles with letting herself fall in love and be loved. I have come to the conclusion that if they are a person of merit and goodness, love. Let yourself love. Even if it doesn't come of anything and you are heartbroken. At least know that you are capable of such a love. And you will have it again.
Here's a poem about this feeling:
What do you do when the stars shine less without him?
with teeth in stomach
biting acid until air arrives.
Love loud with no words,
etching love on giving trees,
until there are stumps left of your love.
Until you burned it to the ground.
Leave the house in cinders,
walk away clean.
