And just for thought...
Love catches you when you least expect it but is it love?
I don’t know, at least not yet.
He is refreshingly sweet, respectful in a much needed way.
We laid beside each other but not a move was made.
His strong arms held me with intimacy but without the fear of being intimate.
His lips never came near mine though I knew we both wanted them to.
I awoke in the morning next to this man, not a boy.
I had given up on decency sadly, on finding a kind soul.
I am not asking for much, just a simple sort of love
And somehow I found it in this gentle giant smiling at me.
He brings me the smallest of joys in a way I didn’t know I needed.
There is no pressure for me to be anything more than me.
I can take my time, no rush to get anywhere but where we are with him.
I want to fall in love with this man but not in my usual car wreck fashion.
I don’t want to leap without knowing that he will catch me, without knowing he is a sure thing.
Could this be love? I don’t know.
I don’t know but he’s the best chance I’ve had in a long time.
He smiled at me the next morning, pulling down my shirt that had rolled up in the night,
And I didn’t flinch or wonder what I had done the night before
Because in his eyes I saw everything that I needed to see,
With this sweet man I only saw the best of intentions.
Is it love?
It has always been him.
It will always be him.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
