Love on the Lake

I’m truly scared
because I’m in love with you.

We watched the sunrise
We watched the sunset

You held me tight
as I marveled at the star-filled sky on that beautiful autumn night
you kept me warm
in a way that the warm fire you built couldn’t.

I cried on your lap as I watched the stars,
sad that my mind took me that far,
happy that you were there to bring me back.
I made a wish that night,
a pact with my heart and the universe.

You held my face and sealed us
with a warm kiss
I made a promise with you
with your soul and mine
to love you with all of me.

  1. I love how this shows even deep expressions of love can be laved with fear. Maybe, if there is no fear or vulnerability, it isn’t true love.

  5. Love is terrifying! Links perfectly to the image of the lake, something deep and unknowable. If I had to pick a favourite line, it would be “a pact with my heart and the universe”. Great read.
