The way you talked to me makes it hard. It makes it hard to get involved with someone.
What used to be easy became complicated.
You declared you did not expect a thing, but would give me the world… #IfILetYou.
You affirmed someone will always love me. #Unconditionally. That it’s written all over me.
You whispered *that someone* will kiss the ground I walk on, hold my hand and rub my feet. #Gladly.
You raised the bar so high I’m afraid to look up.
You raised the bar so high, I’m afraid to look down.
What was easy became complicated; yet, the mountains to climb are conducive to #delectation.
And even if these words turn out to be lies, I doubt the damage can be undone: cause you made a believer out of me.
