This is me showing you who I am when no else is around. Who I am underneath the loud laugh and the goofy stories. This is me willing to show all the parts I’ve been hiding. What I don’t want the world to see or know, the things I wrote when I was scared, what I wrote when I was broken and the words I wrote when my tears filled the pages. This is me ready to tell everything you want to know.
This is me asking you to be my best friend. So I can tell you everything. So I can trust you with all my deepest secrets and share my life with you. I want you to be the person I call when I need to vent and the person I run to when I need to feel understood. I want you to be my best friend so I can have the privilege of being that person for you too. I want to be your best friend too. I want to be your person. I want to be loyal to you. I want you in my life forever. I want to make you feel safe.
This is me trying to introduce you to a different kind of love. The kind of love that accepts all the parts you hate about yourself. The kind of love that writes poetry out of your pain. The kind of love that sees your scars and still thinks you’re beautiful. The kind of love that you don’t have to question. The kind of love that will stick around when you’re used to people leaving.
This is me choosing you. This is me putting you first and giving you my undivided attention. This is me getting over all the old games and the meaningless flings and being real with you. This is me promising to answer all your questions and tell you the truth behind every lie. This is me wanting to love you without breaking a single piece of your heart.
This is me giving you a piece of my heart that I haven’t given to anyone else. This is me handing it to you hoping you’d accept it. This is me giving you a giant piece of my heart knowing that it’s only a matter of time before I happily give you my whole heart.
