She told me

that since I love this

she wants to see it.


I swear that’s the nicest thing

anyone’s ever said to me without thinking

that sounded like it was thought out for centuries.


She said she wants to know

how I rant,

what sets me off

when I don’t usually say

because it’s already bottled up in writing.


I’m afraid of how she’ll see me

this vulnerable,

this aching for all the wrong reasons,

this cliché for all the right ones.


I’m afraid all this baggage

might send her

down the coastline.


I know I will show her my passion,

but not as much as she wants.

I will collect

all the words I think are worthy

and leave the rest behind.

Gonna be a pretty big collection, because I'm pretty sure it covers everything between 1 and 333 :)
