There are a lot of things I can't tell you.

Not because I'm keeping secrets locked behind my teeth or because I'm afraid I'll say something you don't want to hear. This isn't like the last time or the time before. It's simply because I'll never have the exact right words to explain all the ways you make my heart rise and expand and skip a beat.

There aren't enough words to describe how quickly the blood rushes through my veins when we kiss and I'm on tiptoes to reach your lips and your hand is cupping my face, brushing your thumb across my cheekbone and I feel completely at home.

And they haven't even invented a way to portray how I feel when we're driving too fast in the streets of our hometown, and how I can get lost somewhere that is so damn familiar because I have the chance to explore it with someone new – someone like you – and you're singing along with the radio, letting me fall asleep in the passenger seat, because you and I are enough, and we don't need words to fill the silence in between.

And I can't imagine a way to tell you that I can see a future when I look into your eyes as you're walking me to my door like you do each and every night, promising to drive me seventeen hours and one minute to the coast just because I told you I've never seen an ocean crash along the shoreline. I swear I could drown in moments like these and never complain.

I'm not calling it perfect, but it's the closest I've ever found since when I'm in your arms I can forget the world completely and all the ways it's hurt me. And there are a lot of things I can't tell you, but I'm hoping, wishing and praying that you already know.
a bit rough, i think it needs some work.

you managed to portray the very essence of love. that realism, even roughness is what gives this work a deep meaning.
I red it many many times, shared it with my friends...breathless.
thank you for sharing this with the world :)

Keep writing these. :heart:

I roll the window down
And then begin to breathe in
The darkest country road
And the strong scent of evergreen
From the passenger seat as you are driving me home.

Then looking upwards
I strain my eyes and try
To tell the difference between shooting stars and satellites
From the passenger seat as you are driving me home.

"do they collide?"
I ask and you smile.
With my feet on the dash
The world doesn't matter.

When you feel embarrassed then i'll be your pride
When you need directions then i'll be the guide
For all time.
For all time.

Thank you!!! I'm like over the top happy lately. Last night we were driving around and he told me that if I could take a few days off of work, he'd drive us to the east coast. Seriously, I don't even know who does that?! I feel like the luckiest girl ever since it is literally 17 hours and one minute from our town to the Atlantic.
