I want someone to love my soul.
Fall in love with their eyes closed.
I always told him I hated cliches,
and maybe I was lying.
Granted, I have never been one for roses…
But I have always fallen for cheesy.
And maybe that’s true to character…
Or maybe I’m full of surprises.
Did you know my favorite flowers are Tiger Lilies?
Did you know I’d rather have WarHeads,
and Sour Patch Kids on Valentines day?
Dates to the aquarium,
Kisses in shadow and reflections of water.
Take me to an art museum, but stare at me for hours.
I would like to say I’m not asking for too much…
But aren’t I supposed to?
Shouldn’t I not settle?
Running through city streets through snowfall,
Lantern light and fingers entwined.
Lying on the hood of your car and staring at constellations,
If only I knew which was what and how to tell time.
Will you fit me?
While lights puncture and beats pulse,
Bodies surrounding and switching.
I hope you make me smile. I hope I can go on for days and you just chuckle and shake your head.
I would like to tell you I’m picturing your eyes…
But I’m not completely over his yet.
I hope you are a child,
A man who knows when to be quiet and when to hold me.
I hope you love your family and mine.
I hope you’re open and upfront from the start.
I hope I never know you entirely…
And I hope to spend my life learning you.
but let me be free.
Make me happy.
And I will live for you…
I will sacrifice blindly.
Call and I’ll be there.
Jump the fence,
run through fields and drive through fog.
Stand in the rain,
splash through puddles.
Bodies in flooded car light,
Middle of the street,
Soaked couple slow dancing,
Elvis on the radio.
PLEASE have good music taste.
About your dreams,
your faith or fears,
Let me gaze at you for all the time in the world.
Let us have all the time in the world.
Be my next (my first) great love.
Read my blog,
my bad poetry.
Lift me up, but don’t break me down.
Stop my analyzing and let me live in the moment.
Show me how to love the present.
Stop my worrying,
let me feel your heart beat,
let me trace the outlines of your features.
Talk to me til morning,
Dream of me at night.
Quote movies, burst out in song.
Make puns and fall for the sound of my laugh.
Geek out with me,
and let me eat to my heart’s content.
Pay for my meals…occasionally
But let me spoil you.
Blast your music,
drive me around for hours,
and understand my obsession with KPop,
(though I won’t force you to love it).
Talk to me;
even when you’re frightened.
Even when you’ve never spoken your thoughts aloud.
Travel the world with me;
We’ll see Paris and Rome and Barcelona.
Greece. Morocco. Ireland.
First the Louvre, then the Trevi Fountain.
Make a wish, but keep your eyes closed.
Look at me.
I will be yours,
and I will expect.
Help let love consume me,
but still live independently.
Pray for me.
and put this first.
Look to my God,
Call to my God,
Love my God…
Am I asking for too much?
For someone to share my faith, but not a religion.
and show affection.
But most of all let me anticipate,
because though I say I hate surprises,
I will let you lead.
I will let go of control and I will let you kiss me first.
Whoever you are.
