you don’t expect me to be someone i’m not,
because you know i am vulnerable, right?
you can see the tenderness in
the reality of my defenseless heart.
i like my voice as it describes you to me
…and now, i have something i need to tell you
don’t ask me to show you what it’s like to lose a beautiful heart,
don’t let me go another day before i tell you i love you.
