For You

I always thought that people who would do just about anything for love were a bit desperate for approval and attention, so I just couldn’t fathom it.

I had been in relationships and I never really felt that heart-stopping feeling that made people crazy, so I figured it didn’t really exist in real life and people just had to make do with the cards they’ve been dealt.

The day I met you, my heart didn’t stop but I couldn’t breathe either, I was sure I was going to pass out. Then you walked over and smiled and my treacherous knees gave in and you had to catch me from falling.

In one minute I felt every single feeling I had heard about and dreaded for so long, and I didn’t need anyone to tell me that if you ask me to go to the ends of the earth with you, I’ll do it in a heartbeat and more.
