When you’re in a relationship,
You feel free. Free to be as weird,
Crazy, and happy as you
Can possibly be. Everything about
Them, their scars, their edges,
And every other part of them
Makes them beautifully, imperfectly
Awesome. They don’t care what
Anyone else thinks.You don’t try to
Change them or anything about them.
They are, as all those love songs
Say, perfect just the way they are.
You feel comfortable around them.
You don’t mind crying in front of
Them or wearing your heart on your
Shoulder. You can be as open with
This one person as much as you could
Possibly want. Every time you hear
A song you love, you think of them.
In the gentle breeze of a cloudy
Day or in the pitter patter of rain
On the window, your heart whispers
For them. They make you smile
More than anyone and they make
Your days brighter. They don’t
Make you feel crazy or stupid and
They don’t belittle you in any way.
They’re just so kind and understanding.
They’re the ones that make sense of
All those love stories you heard of as
A kid. They help you realize why they
Say love makes you go crazy.
They help you make sense of who you
Are and they make you
A better person. Not by forcing you
To do anything. Not by destroying
You. They make you a better person
Just by being there and loving you
The way you always wanted
Someone to. They don’t ask you
To blow off your friends just
Because they don’t like them
Or because they’re insecure.
They don’t ask you to do
Anything that will hurt you or
Break your heart. They understand
That you are human and it’s unfair
To ask you to open wounds or
Bend your bones just to make
Them happy. They understand that
A relationship is not one-sided.
Both give and take equally.
The only exception is when one
Has a rough day or the like.
They listen when you need them
To. They are there for you, even
If they don’t quite understand.
They hold you when you’re
Anxious, listen to you when you
Rant and they make you laugh
When you can’t even smile.
All they want is for you to be
Happy. You feel like you’ve
Met that one person you would
Spend the rest of your life with.
You’re never second to anyone
And they don’t put you on a
Carousel of broken hearts and
Tears. They don’t make you feel
Foolish for giving them a chance
And they appreciate you. They
Appreciate every gift you gave them
And every bit of effort put into that
Relationship. You don’t have
To share them and vice versa.
You don’t have to fit in their
Schedule or anything. They
Make time for you and they don’t
Make you feel like a
Burden. They accept you as
You are and you’re enough
For them. They don’t string
You along for the ride or the
Rush. They don’t use you.
They don’t abuse you or
Your heart in any way.
They don’t take the icing
From the cake that is your
Heart and trash the parts that
They don’t like. They’re your
Best friend, your lover, your first
Thought in the morning,
Your last thought at night,
And they mean so much
To you. They are unlike
Any other being you’ve
Ever known. They don’t just
Let the relationship crumble
At your feet and they actually
Put in the effort. They don’t want to
Waste your time and vice versa.
They know love is too beautiful
To be wasted, so they stay open
And honest. They know life is
Too short to hold back anything.
So, when you hear those words,
"Because I love you", You feel
Content and loved. And you'll
Never know regret.
