That’s the thing about love,
you tell me I’m not like most girls
I tell you I’ve never met someone like you.
You touch me without even touching me
I struggle so deeply to understand how someone can
be so ethereal, yet so human.
Under the nights sunshine of the moon’s halo
you guide me through the maze of your love.
As we run
the fear begins to drip off of my skin
leaving a trail of silver with a smell of “No, he’s not like the rest”.
you walk hand-in-hand with me
through the darkness
into the light
that is your chest
that holds your heart.
You tell me that whole is what you feel as I take refuge in the cave of your love.
Whole is what I feel as my soul’s key opens the lock to the door of your heart.
Whole is what I feel as you hold my hand through the purging of the sickness of past tournaments.
Home is where I am when I am with you.
That’s the thing about love
it never tells us when,
or where or why,
but when it arrives it changes our lives completely.
