You make my heart pound in my chest at the mere thought of you,
You make my lips quiver in excitement when you come close to me,
You make my brain feel fuzzy,
You make me want to jump into your arms and never let go,
You make me want to hide like a frightened girl,
You make my palms sweat and my stomach flip-flop,
You make me feel like I’m flying and falling at the same time,
You make me forget my fears when I’m with you,
So, why then, can’t I explain this properly to you? Why can’t I just come out and say that I love you? Why can’t I tell you that I want to be with you, that I want our children to become brothers, that I want every part of you, even your flaws? Why can I tell you every day that I miss you, and that I like you, and that I care about you, but I can’t tell you I love you? I know that if I were to say it, you would tell me you feel the same, I know that we could be really happy together. I know that we could get married and live happily ever after. So why is it that every time I try to tell you, my mouth closes up and the words won’t come out?
I love you, I hope you know that.
