I don´t want to fall in love
I want to ease into it, gently
like you try a new pair of shoes: I want to carefully dig into it, and polish every. single.step.
I want it to be a path full of thorns and holes, so we can hold hands and clear it as a whole,
I want to see you fly away sometimes, and watch you come back to the nest of my arms, each time.
I want your smile to give me strenght at dawn, and soothe my throbbing soul at night.
I want to see you stay when we both stumble and fall and bleed and cry - I want to see us pick up the pieces one. by. one.
I don´t want to fall in love .
I want to ease gently into it, like the start of a new book.
I want our story to be full
I want our story to be full of tenderness,
I want our story to be full of tenderness, glory
I want our story to be full of tenderness, glory, plot twists.
I want you to remember me fondly, even if I´m not the last chapter of your story.
