I called you a coward at least five times before you kissed me and two years later I realize I’m the coward. I was so goddamn scared to kiss you, but damn I wanted you to; and I know you wanted to kiss me too. It was just something I could tease you about. Then when we kissed everything just melded together so perfectly. Now two years later from that moment, I realize I was always the scared one.
