Please don’t fall in love with me.
Because I’ll write poems about your collar bones curve, and the way your eyes flicker when you’re upset. I’ll look at your trembling lips. I’ll remember your favorite song and listen to it on repeat until the lyrics are engraved into the crevasses of my brain. I’ll remember why you prefer coffee over tea. I’ll listen to your voice notes in your absence. I’ll stare at our picture taped on my bathroom mirror. I’ll think of you, every minute of everyday. I’ll love you even when you break me. I’ll love you regardless your flaws. I’ll learn to embrace and love them. I’ll love more than you’ll ever love me. I’ll wrap my legs around your waist, and whisper in your ear, “Stay”. I’ll love you in a way no one else has ever before, in a way no one else can.
Love is patient and kind, love is deliberate. Love is hard. Love is pain and sacrifice, it’s seeing the darkness in another person and defying the impulse to jump ship.
And when I love, I won’t give up. I’ll look into your eyes and explore galaxies , will venture within your constellations.
Will love you endlessly.
Please don’t fall in love with me?
