my running slowed to a jog.
then a walk.
then, i found i was barely moving at all
for gravity had been stolen from me,
as had my heart.
you showered me with love and attention.
i played hard to get, though my heart begged me not to
but that didnt bother you,
you like a challenge .
within weeks, my heart had won.
it was a warm summers afternoon
when my sister dropped me off to meet you.
i was scared.
'what if' was the start of every scenario in my head.
we overcame first date nerves
we fell in love
and a year later, im just as in love as i was that day.
