What if Loving You Is Wrong?

I’m afraid to fall in love with you.

I’m afraid to write poems about you,

I am afraid to let you occupy my mind.

What if we’re not meant to be together?

I’m afraid to give my heart to something fruitless.

We walk very different paths, what if they were never meant to join?

The vulnerability of your heart draws me in.

You are so mysterious in your ways, I can never figure you out.

But I’m afraid to look deeper, what if loving you is wrong?

You

What’s hidden between us? Nothing. There is not a detail of my soul that is unknown to you. Or a dream in my heart that hasn’t been revealed to you. You know the true meaning behind all of my expressions. All the different versions of my laughs. You know what scares me the most, and what makes me ecstatic. Even in silence we speak to each other in a million little ways. The looks and the smiles saying what words cannot.
