you & me

my heart is full tonight
my mind is calm
what kind of magic happened to
bring us together
a kind of sweet and perfect timing
I could spend hours talking to you
and lying next to you
and taking you
so deeply
into every part
every inch
of me

you got me

you got me listening to
sappy sweet love songs and
daydreaming all the time
about you and
me and
us and
all the things that could be

you got my heart beating
faster and
my mind feeling calmer
I feel a stillness when I’m with you but
how can time stop and
go so quickly when you’re near

you got these walls
crumbling and
hope growing and
romance seeping back into
inch of me

maybe it’s love

I don’t know how
you broke down these walls
so quickly.

I didn’t think I could feel like this,
and trusting.

When I believed there couldn’t be
something deeper,
something more meaningful,
you planted a seed
deep in my heart and
something sprouted.

words come slower
when happiness runs higher
it’s a sweet place to be

the space next to you

words and thoughts and fears
swirling in my mind
but when my head is lying
on your chest
and your arms are wrapped
around me
there is nothing
but calm and love
