I wanted to be poetic so I said your body was a canvas that I couldn’t stop painting.

 

In truth, your body is a masterpiece sent from God that I promised I would always cherish wholly.

 

There are butterflies residing in every organ inside me. That’s what you do.

 

Don’t be so damn beautiful that you break me,

constantly.

 

That night, darling, I looked up at the sky and saw your eyes. I don’t understand why, or how, but I am still thankful.

 

I’m sorry I hurt so many people on my way back to you, and I’m sorry I hurt you too.

I was simply trying, to steer you away from the broken shards inside me.

 

I wanted to be better for you.

 

I wish I could be the person that fixes you.

 

I am merely shades upon shades of broken roads that will never lead me here;

 

My heaven,

 

You told me you were breaking and somehow that made me feel more whole.

 

 

The only thing you are guilty of, is being so good, and so damn beautiful that I couldn’t help to not fall in love with you.

 

I am stumbling with my two left feet trying to anchor myself to you.

I know it’s impossible to hold on longer,

but I promise I will always try.

 

You said “my heart that loves you so much” and I could only think of how I will never be able to respond to that statement quite as much as I want to.

 

I would drown you in seas of love, darling, but I am both incapable and unwilling.

 

I held your hand as you said goodbye,

I said I’d never really let you go,

and you told me you hope I’ll never have to.

 

I was the wolf in sheep’s clothing, and you will always be the Shepard calling me home.
