disappear when you are near me.
But, invisibility isn’t a trait I’ve developed and so every time you come around I try with all my might not to turn into jello.
I want to act normal and not feel like when you’re around I can’t seem to stop the fast beating of my heart.
The slowness of the time we spend together but some how you seem so calm and collected.
You smile and the wood inside of me catches fire and warmth spreads inside of me and the coldness of the winter soon fades from my mind.
You dance around me like the flames of the fire dancing around inside of me, your movement so smooth and defined.
You are the bright star I’ve been looking for every night I look up at the sky and wonder what is it that’s missing from my life.
You came out of nowhere and you stamped your claim on my life, my heart before I could blink an eye.
And you made it clear you won’t going anywhere and in my heart and my mind I believed and trusted your word.
