You’ve had my full attention from the moment I first laid my eyes on you. There is just something about you that makes me want to get to know you, not just the simple things, but all of you. I want to know every hidden corner of your life. The one you text when you’re drunk, because I’m the first name that pops into your mind. I want to be your everything, just like you are my everything. Every text message from you puts a smile on my face, I laugh out loud at your jokes, and you tease me because any conversation without a bit of flirty banter is boring.
The butterflies you give me are unbearable because I know that you and I aren’t together. It’s agony knowing that we live in separate countries and only see each other once in a blue moon. It’s agony because I know that we could be great together. We both have feelings for each other, but we don’t say it out loud. Because what would be the point? It’s not like it would bring us together… or magically make two countries become one.
You told me you didn’t believe in love at first sight and neither did I, but let’s be real. We’d only known each other for 24 hours and look at us now! We can’t go a day without talking, we can’t even go a weekend without 2 hour phone calls…
I wish your arms were around me. It’s not the same just talking about it.
In five months time you’re going to be living in the same city as me, but will we make it that long? I can’t wait. I long for that day, but fear it too. What if you find someone else? Someone new? Someone better?
Either way. I’m counting down the days. Are you?
