Written

Write it down.

As the ink leaves its mark on paper,

So does the warmth in my heart.

Write it down.

For fear of growth and of familiarity,

For assurance of safety from a grave danger,

In a few minutes, for a calm heart.

Write it down.

For the insane thoughts to leave my mind,

For the quick-paced beat to stop.

For the butterflies to flee from the pit of my stomach,

Write it down.

A week is not enough to justify this.

Write it down.

To be judged, I won’t.

Neither to assume nor to expect.

This should end, and it should now.

And so, write it down.

From this day forward,

Until no end.

I will never think, speak, or even consider

The indescribable happiness of it,

Of the possibility of you and me.

Write it down.

In the hope that as the ink leaves its mark on paper,

So does the warmth in my heart.
