Love And Trust

“I fell for you without knowing I was
falling at all. And you were waiting
at the bottom to catch me.”

You see, darling, trust means everything to me. If I didn’t trust you, I would have kept you at arm’s length. I would have guarded my past tragedies. My heart’s desires. My dreams. My hopes for the future. But you see, somewhere in there, in the beginning, you knocked all my walls down without me even realizing I was surrounded by rubble. I trusted you without realizing it. I fell for you without knowing I was falling at all. And the best part, you were waiting at the bottom to catch me, and somehow I knew, I was safe with you the whole time.
