summer love

I never believed in love at first sight but for some reason, I felt something different when we first met. The more I got to know you, the more my feelings intensified. And when you smiled, I knew that I was in trouble.
—  I just hope that you’ll let me fall in your arms
You know you’re falling in love when you see several faces a day but you crave none than the one who has stolen your heart.
—  t.i // Repost from something I wrote a while ago.
I know that you’re trying to get to know me. That you’re trying to get me to open up. But I can’t help myself from stopping you each and every time. I’m scared that you’ll judge me. I’m scared of giving little pieces of myself to you, only to have us part ways. I’m scared of allowing myself to care for you. I’m scared to have feelings for you. You’re a good guy and I wish that you weren’t.
—  Because I don’t want to fall
What We Think Love Will Feel Like:
Adjacent snow angels dancing across meadows and sunsets filled with the brightest of pinks. Confetti and stardust raining down from the sky and hot chocolate with too many marshmallows floating to the top. Boardwalk dates and saltwater taffy wrapped neatly in waxed paper.
What Love Actually Feels Like:
Holding hands with sweaty palms and butterflies tying knots in your stomach. Drunken courage leading to sober confessions and laughing so hard you snort. Stolen sweatshirts that you wear to bed, his minty scent lacing your sheets like a poorly kept secret. Sloppy kisses and blushing cheeks, but you wouldn’t have it any other way.
—  love can be confusing, but it’s always worth it
