Just What I Am


i want to love you.
it saddens me. to know that you’ve been hurt from someone who leaves you unrequited. to know that you’re afraid of making the same mistakes if you find love once again. to know we can’t hold on to something that could possibly never happen. but i would risk my chances. i can only wish to be on the other side with you. even if we are miles away, it would all be worth it if i could see you in person. i would admire how beautiful you are with or without style, listen to every word you would have to say because hearing you talk makes me smile, hold you so i can feel your heartbeat next to mine, and look into your eyes where i can find eternal bliss. just staring at you while keeping in mind that i’d cherish every second with her. i’d be happy to take good care of her. because you don’t make me feel so alone in this world. and so you see..
i want to love you.
that is, if you let me.
