I don’t know how to tell you I’m falling in love with you. You see, after having my heart broken repeatedly, my guard is up too high. I never broke it down to let you in, you just pushed right through like it didn’t exist. And somehow the wall of defense I put up let you slip right through. I’m so happy it did. Now, you’re my best friend. I pick up my phone, about to call you, and instantly it’s ringing with your call. We see each other every day, going from the beach to the couch and cuddling under a blanket to watch random shows and movies. Every time I feel your arms around me my heart skips a beat. I could get lost in your eyes. Whenever we sit beside one another I can feel my body screaming at yours to close the space between us. There’s so much sexual tension between us. Love, just close the space. Reach out and hold my hand like I know you want to. Keep your body next to mine. No one else loves me the way you do. No one else loves my scarred heart enough for the scars to slowly fade. But you do. You make me happier than I have been in a long time. I know you feel the same way. You told me so. You tell me I’m beautiful and the best friend you’ve had and how much you want to be with me every day.
The point is, just SAY IT. Say out loud the words both of our hearts are screaming. Please, just please. Be a man. Take the first step. Even if we fall flat on our backs, at least we’ll be together.
