Sudden Surrender

“Darling, I’m tired of hiding my heart.
You’re what I want. I’ve fallen for you.”

Darling, I’m tired. So very tired. I can’t look at you without feeling like I can fly. I can’t bear to touch you without feeling electricity flowing through my veins. I can’t hear your name without my heart skipping a beat. I can’t bear to keep living like this. Like I’m drowning in you. Like I’m hopelessly falling for you. Like I am a helpless victim.

So I give up. I’m raising the white flag. You’re what I want. You. All of you. I’ve fallen for you and there’s no going back. There will never be anyone else. There will only ever be you.

I’m tired of fighting a heart
that wants to love you.
So please tell me you love me too.
