“Nothing,” I had said.
That was a lie because I’m afraid our love will leave much faster than it came.
Fast enough to knock me down and keep me down
With enough force to cripple me to the point that I won’t be able to stand
What happens when you no longer love me?
I want you to be my sweet beginning, not my bitter end. I want to leave this town with you and everything we’ve ever known. Maybe only for a little while. Maybe forever. I want quiet evenings and light touches. I want to trace your spine then just as I do now. I want to watch the world spin with you, letting each delicate second slip by. I want you. Always and forever. So much that it hurts. It leaves gashes on my heart that will never be healed, I know. I don’t mind though. They’re there from you and your love; the price could never be high enough.
