Pain is Just a Consequence of Love

Location

You smell like heaven,

and I’m enamored by the possibilities,



but I know what possibilities lead to

 

Forever.



Or a broken heart.



I’m ready to step off the edge,

but you’re unmoving…



I let you pull our hips closer together,



I let you hold my hand,



I let our legs intertwine,



your heart pounds in my ear,

yet you could never be farther away,

the fervor is gone.



I would drop everything for you…

Who am I kidding,

I’ve already fallen.



Move your fingertips down my spine,



grab my waist,



the tip of my nose presses on your jawline…



I feel your eyelashes on my cheekbones,

yet there’s only air.



I hear you whisper in my ear

when you’re nowhere near me.



I tell you I love you…

 

And my heart breaks.
