I hope you know that I’m not just here for the way your bones feel against mine or the way you kiss me like this is the end of the world. I’m here to wake you when you start crying in your sleep and I’m here to clean up the blood when your breathing gets shallow. I’m here to hold you back when you try to jump and I’m here to hold your hand when I can’t stop you. and I love the way you say my name and the way you look when it’s cold out. I’m here for every bit of you. Even the messy bits. and that’s how it will always be. We fell in love two years ago when we were tired and it was raining hard on both of us but I would stand out in a storm forever if it meant I got to fall asleep next to you.
The thing is I’ve spent most of my life
And trying to convince them to
In my life.
And guess how many stayed?
So there are no more exceptions.
No more begging.
No more chasing.
If you want to be in my life, I won’t need to convince you
Or chase you.
You’ll just stay.
My life is an unlocked door.
You can let yourself in.
And you can also let yourself out.
