you let me be honest even when it’s not what you want to hear. you let me and you want me to. you long for me to. because knowing me more, even if it isn’t the good stuff, is what you want. you just want to know my heart. my heart is scared. my heart is so full pride for you and for the man that you are and the man that I have seen you become. my heart knows that you are exactly the man that you should be because you are everything good in the world and nothing bad. i long for you to see my heart in its entire messy wholeness. i desire to see yours too. but yours i know is beaming. yours is full of joy and desire, and deeply rooted, unashamed, sacrificial, honest love. that heart is what my heart loves. that heart is what makes my heart not scared. that heart that is full of that pure joy. that reckless love. that jealous, selfless, easy flowing love. so if i am being honest, which i know is what you want, then all that i know is that i am in love with you and your heart and that is something i will always be sure of.
