I don’t care who you are. If your girlfriend falls asleep in your lap, and even after 30 minutes when both of your legs go numb, don’t move. You fucking stay there and appreciate the cute little thing in your lap. If you move you’re weak and natural selection is coming for you.
You, my love, have found your way in and built a nest out of me. You lie quietly inside the valves of my heart pushing your way through my veins with every beat. You make your presence known like a raging fire in my mind as my breath finds the way to warm your lips with the sweetest words ever whispered. Youve becomed the welcomed chill on the first day of fall after another long harsh summer. Youre the glacier that travels next to me drifting beautifully & unable to melt. And just like the songs you sing, what we are will replay eternally in my mind.
You, my beautiful girl, have me falling in a way ive never known. Not the gentle way a leaf falls from the tree to the ground after its turned every color of fall but in the way a skydiver leaps from a noisy plane.. Head first & all at once. Heart racing, palms sweating.. But completely unafraid of what lies below. Youve snuck into my chest like thoughts do on a sleepless night. Sent to destroy the numbing chill that this life hands down to its weakest warriors.
You, my sweetheart, have consumed me whole. I see my reflection living deep within your skin, neighboring your tattoos & holding you tight on nights im no where to be found. I see my flaws wrapped in your embrace completely understood and accepted. I see myself - past, present, and future - shining out of you like the glow of a pregnant soon to be mom. & through the music on the radio I see our days dance before us. Our egos drowning as we watch death birth life for the last time in our lives. Im tangled up in the paint that marks my walls and the familiarty of your face and features. Im searching for your scent knowing very well it lies hundreds of miles away.. though hundreds of miles away you still make me warm.. This distance has nothing on us.
