Little thunderstorm
Never worry whether you were too foreword
Or too much
Because this broken world has forgotten what it is like to love and be loved in wholes
It is not your fault that the world hides from you
Most people don't realize the goodness that comes with the tempest that you are
There is a box
On the top shelf
In the corner of my closet
That I have to climb if I want to reach it

It is filled with everything left over from us

I don't open it anymore
Most weeks go by and I forget it's even there

I hope you're happy
And I hope sometimes you think about me too
Her arms felt like summer grass
And her body was as strong as mountains
She had oceans for eyes
And whispered like the wind

She was Mother Earth
Holding her precious ones close
Trying to show them the beauty of the world
And the grace in letting go
Sticks and stones
Broke my bones
And you're words forever haunt me

Bruises fades
Wounds will heal
But you left my soul forever bleeding
If I'm being honest
I just want us to fall in love
Let the world around us fall apart
I don't care
Just let this be simple
I will love you and you love me in return
And that will be enough for our tired souls to endure the chaos in the rest of our lives
Don't be in love with somebody else
I think I'm starting to love you
And I don't know how to stop
I don't think I can handle giving you my love to only have it returned
So please
Just love me and we'll figure out the rest later
I want to fall in love with you
I so desperately do
But unfortunately there were men who came before you that wrecked my heart
And ever since then I haven't been able to love the way I want to
(The way I know I could)

I will give you my heart
But only if you can make the promise this is the last time I give it away
