You Make Loving You Easy

I feel like everything in my life has led me to you. Those heartaches and sleepless nights are now a thing of the past. I can’t quite grasp how on earth you’ve become such an important person to me. You were merely a stranger that I didn’t see coming.

To be honest, I thought you were just someone who wanted to pass the time; to date and to have fun. No obligations and no strings attached, perhaps? I thought this was my chance to experience something new, to redeem myself. Something I’m not used to at all.

But you see, life has a funny way of playing tricks on us. Even you didn’t expect any of this. I mean how could you? You weren’t looking for love to begin with. And I, on the other hand, built the Great Wall of China around my scarred but functioning heart.

I promised myself right from the start that I wouldn’t fall in love with you, because to go through another heartbreak would be an additional piece to my gallery of scars. But here I am, like a clueless moth drawn to the flame; I catch myself falling for you as easily as that.

I have never met anyone like you, as cliché as it sounds, but you’ve brought back life into me that I thought was dead.

You’re someone I can easily talk to about anything. And little did I know, you were falling deeper in love with me too. It was something we both couldn’t control, something neither of us could stop from happening.

You’re a breath of fresh air I didn’t know I needed. This was new to me. Oh so different. So real. So alien. And here I am trudging on in foreign territory, with my walls slowly crumbling and bravely wearing a piece of my heart on my sleeve. I’m ready. I finally have the right kind of love people talk about. A symphony filled with laughter and security, kisses on the forehead, and honest conversations. Thank you. You make loving you easy. TC mark
