You always give me butterflies.
Won’t you take them away?
I find it nearly impossible to think when my heart is beating to the rhythm of their gossamer wings.
And it’s all because of you.

You came up behind me and wrapped me in your arms and covered my eyes with your hands.

"Guess who," you whispered in my ear, and

I laughed to think that you believed I would not know that it was you by the feeling of your heart beating against my spine.

Between silken sheets we let all of the golden clocks fall over the edge of our world.
There, we kissed and kissed until we could measure time only by the rise and fall of our broken breaths and knew no other taste
than the light in each others bones.

On this winter morning
I’m daydreaming
of warm summer daysprings,
blue lake glistenings,
butterscotch skin,
heartbeat quickenings,
and unmade decisions behind blue eyes.
lying in bed, on a holiday morning, the mind is free to frolic

you held me close to you,
and I felt your heart beating
deep inside of your rib cage.

I closed my eyes and listened
to the rise and fall of your chest,
hearing the soft thump of
your heartbeat and imagining
that if I stayed still for long enough,
I could melt into you.

for the first time in my life,
I felt like I belonged.

you made me feel like
I belonged with you

like I belonged on this planet.

like I belonged here, right here,
secure in your arms.

I haven’t felt safe
since you let go of me.

The moon's going extra tonight
illuminating the whole sea

two hearts, one shore
different beat, same waves

silence spoke thousands of emotions

one thought came, loud and melancholic
" love, before it's too late to love at all ".

I'm helpless
I swear you hit me at a 100 miles an hour
I stoke the fire and tend the flame
Crashing, burning do it all again.
You're reckless
No mercy
I can't resist it even though I know it hurts me.
So roll the dice and play the game
I'm lost in love with no one else to blame
I'm falling down, I'm falling for you now
So catch me love before I hit the ground.
I know we have crossed the line
When your heartbeats just like mine
And all our stars align
