it’s what love is

I know we’re different
you don’t understand me sometimes
I don’t understand you sometimes
but I know I care for you
I know I want the best for you
I know holding your hand
makes me feel better
and I know being wrapped in your arms
is some kind of magic

a first date

we talked for hours that first night
it didn’t feel forced or awkward
I felt comfortable, at ease
I rambled about the dumbest things
unintentionally trying hard
not to linger my face too close to yours
until you finally asked outright
can I kiss you?
then your lips on my mine
our tongues entwined
it was perfection
the whole night was perfection
