In The Breaking

“Don’t push me away thinking
I’ll break by loving you.
Because I won’t.”

It’s in the skipping of the beats of my heart. The trembling of uncertainty in my fingers. The itch in my lips with the urge to lean toward you. It’s in the slow, steady steps I take in your direction with my eyes locked with yours. It’s in the way I cautiously yet confidently move toward you. Like prey without fear, standing in challenge to the one with those dangerous eyes. But there’s no fear. There’s never been any fear. So don’t push me away thinking I’ll break by loving you. Because I won’t.
