Today is the day,
even with all my endurance and fortitude,
I walk apprehensively towards you.
With my sphere and shield
ready to face my phobias and my faith,
hoping to be the hero of our Hopeless Romantic love
that will thwart our adversities.
If I disclose my weaknesses,
I anticipate that you would put down your bow
and not shoot an arrow on my heel…
If we kiss,
may that kiss be of affection and forgiveness,
and not the kiss of death.
If we unite,
may that closet be vacant
and not full of skeletons.
If we trust,
may that trust never be broken
and not reenact Samson and Delilah.
But If our paths diverge,
may that love I have for you be remembered
and not forgotten.
The day is today in which our faiths
lay on your arrow.
