Bear with me as I try to tell a story of
Utter importance to me.
There is a girl who is scared of love;
There is a boy that
Easily makes her heart
Run laps around the earth and do
Flips when he smiles with those
Lips that form words so perfectly.
It surprises her that he would
Even look her way, which made her
Scared. Can a guy like him
Actually like a girl like her? She's
Not the prettiest girl he could
Date, yet here he is,
Wanting to hear
About her day, her
Stories, her hobbies, and her
Past. Why does she feel
So acared? There's too many fears
Butting into her thoughts,
Unraveling the security
Tied around them,
Tearing at her mind and
Eating her up inside. She
Really wants them to work and
Fights the anxiety
Lurking and festering
Inside her mind. She tries to
Ease her mind, but she can't trust.
She can't help but feel she
Always loses, even when she does
Nothing wrong-so what can she
Do to make this time
Work? She tries to focus on
All the good things between them.
Sparks that fly and
She can't help
But smile when she
Utters his name.
The sound of it seems
To put all anxiety to shame. He
Ends all worry, and she can
Relax. Her heart begins to
Flutter when he
Laughs. His presence
Incites a breath of relief, but as he
Exits her mind begins to
Slip back into her anxious mess.
As she worries, she tells herself he's
Not going to hurt her like the last
Did. The last one
Was just a bump in the road, just
A little slip. Not all are that way.
She can't help but realize how
Pretty love can be, but also that it
