Go Ahead, Tell Her

I know it’s wrong. I know thinking about the way you slipped your hands up the back of my shirt; how kissing your lips was a sweet sin. I know the thought of you touching me in all the right places won’t get me anywhere good. I know the thought of the heat of you will only make me fall harder.

Go ahead, tell her you love her and didn’t spend a minute without her on your mind. Go ahead, tell her that there is no one else.

Then remember me and the way I make you feel. How much you like it. How much you crave it. How I am unlike any other person you have ever met before. How I am worth every risk.

How I wear the scent of cake on my skin. How every kiss is a sweet mixture of vanilla and buttercream frosting. How it feels like you are sneaking down at midnight to take the last slice from the counter.

Go ahead, keep telling yourself that you haven’t fallen for me. Go ahead, keep telling yourself that you will keep your mind and heart separate.

Then remember me and the way you can’t wake up each morning without me on your mind. How it pains you that you can’t see me every day. How late at night when you are tossing and turning because you can’t get me out of your head.

How my eyes are all the shades of green that fill you with envy. How the sound of my laughter brings out my child-like soul. How I don’t care how foolish or silly I look when I send you videos or pictures. How my hand fit perfectly interlaced with yours.

Go ahead, tell her that there is no one else that could compare to her. Go ahead, tell her that all of your energy is focused on her. Go ahead, tell her she’s special.

Then remember me and how I make you a choice. How loyal and determined I am – how that reflects in my relationships with the ones I hold dear. How I will go down fighting before I ever lose anything or anyone.

How my words are a special magic. How when I speak and bite my lip as a nervous twitch somehow sends you spiraling. How when I tell you something, you feel it in your bones.

Go ahead, keep telling yourself that I am easy to forget. Go ahead, keep telling yourself that my very presence didn’t changed your life. Go ahead, keep telling yourself that the world will keep going without me in it.

Then remember me smiling and laughing, eating up your every word. How you knew exactly when I needed cheering up and exactly what I needed to hear. How you were just as surprised as I was to feel the way that we do. 

How I secretly smell every book before I crack its spine. How I delicately finger through the pages. How I can spend hours, lost in thought but come out forever changed. How I could move mountains and stars. How they are jealous of me.

Go ahead, tell her you love her and that there is no one else on this world like her. Go ahead, tell her that there is no one you have loved more.

Then remember me.
