in love couple

in an ideal world,
you show up at my doorstep
at 3 AM,
and tell me that you left her
and have always loved me.

but this is not an ideal world,
and you do not love me.

If you want to fall in love, you can’t hold everything in. You have to open up, take that risk. You’ll be hurt sometimes, but if you don’t, you’ll never be happy. The one you find may not be the kind…you expected to fall in love with, but it won’t matter, you’ll love…
