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
