i’m sorry that my mind runs too fast and dives head first into my fears. i’m sorry for the way it submerges to the bottom until i can no longer breathe your name out loud. i know my confusion and doubt must make you dizzy and go crazy inside. i can feel it in the trembles of your voice after you say you love me and then hold your breath waiting to see how i will reply.
but boy, you should know all i need is for you to tell me something sweet to get over it. just say my name in the way only you can say it, in the way that saves me from myself and pulls me into the depths of you - where your name and my breath are one again.
it’s you and only you that keeps me from sinking into a place i’ll never come back from. just whisper that you love me and only me, and i promise even if there is silence you will feel my soul softly touching the innermost part of your heart and writing our names there with indelible ink.
