If You’re Going To Be With Me, Love Me Like You Mean It

If you’re going to love me, love me wholeheartedly.

Love me like I’m your only choice. The one you choose to love out of so many. The priority you place out of your many commitments. The constant you depend on when the world gets confusing.

Love me like I’m your salvation. The home you want to sink into at the end of a tired work day. The comfort you seek when disaster strikes and you’re at a loss what to do. The lighthouse you look for hope and inspiration when darkness engulfs you.

Love me like I’m your equal, your partner, and your best friend. Let me seamlessly integrate into your life. Let me into the deepest part of your soul. Let me be part of your world so that I can always be there for you.

Tell me all about yourself- the important milestones that you have conquered and resulted in the quiet confidence and formidable strength that clung to you today. The triumphant victories that emerged after you fought so hard for your ambition and dream. The gut-wrenching failures and defeats that built you to be the person you are standing before me. The memories that you have painstakingly forged before you met me. The weird quirks that made you so distinctly you. The people close to your heart who have seen you through the good and bad times.

Love me simply because I matter to you. 

If you’re going to love me, love me permanently and persistently.

Give me a love that never wilted or fade through the course of time. A love that never turns cold and ashen despite distance and time between us. A love that never flees at the sight of difficulties arising ahead. A love that never surrenders and instead, believes in each other no matter the odds against us. A love that is the surest and most certain thing you know.

Give me a love that helps us to evolve and blossom into a stronger and better version of ourselves. A love that pushes me out of my comfort zone and drives me to chase after my scary dreams with you by my side. A love that stays and is the home I am searching for.

I want to weave our stories and see how they somehow make perfect sense together. I want us to be our imperfect flawed selves yet somehow belong swimmingly well together. I want to entwine our fates and embark on our life journey together to find out where our heart lies.

If you’re going to love me, love me like you meant it.

With every piece of your heart. With bountiful of desire running through your blood. With excessive amounts of attachment for me. Show me that I’m someone you want to spend your life with. Fight for us by never abandoning what we have. Fall in love with me and never look back.

Because I know, there is no turning back for me. Once I love you, I will never let you go. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
