Do You Love Me?

“Having you with me is like a dream come true.
And I don’t want to wake up.”

How could I ever forget that smile of yours? How could I not read your body like an open book, read from cover to cover over and over again? How could I not look into your eyes and forget what beauty really means? Because having you — having you with me — is like a dream come true. A wonderful dream that I never want to wake up from.

And I can’t help it. I love it when you tell me how much you love me. I love it when you look at me like I’m the only thing in the room — the only thing that matters.

But I can’t help it. I still wonder sometimes. Do you love me? The way I love you? Like the world will implode if you left? Do you feel me the way I feel you? Can you read me like I read you?
