One: A Tale of Love

I never realized

There was a big difference between

Being in love

And loving someone.

Not until you came along.


I’ve come up with an idea.

I call it

The hole of love.

It’s the hole you dig yourself

When you’re falling in love with somebody.

The deeper you go

The more in the love are.

Right now I’m lowering myself slowly down the hole

While you’re at the bottom, you’ve been there for awhile.



I know I love you

But I’m not at the bottom, I’m not in deep love just yet

And that scares me.


Because your at the bottom

And I’m coming down

I can’t help but wonder

When I’ll come around.

This feeling, it’s new

It scares me a little

But there’s nothing I can

My heart is just so brittle.

I’m scared of those words

And what they will bring

I’m scared because I don’t know

I just don’t know anything.

And I’m not at the bottom

I'm just not there yet

Can I trust that you’ll wait for me

Or will you leave me to forget?

I love you, I do

And I know you love me too

It’s just these thoughts

All I can think about is you.

But I know I’m ready

I'm ready for this

I’m falling softly

I love to reminisce.

I don’t know how this will go

But what I do know

Is that I love you so.
