“It was in her voice and the way that she moved when I danced with her, like a rhythm only we both knew, it’s nights like tonight you hate to end. But there’s tomorrow to always say hello again. Yet, with her I want to skip all the nervous rituals of small talk and really converse with her but that’s not how it is anymore. You’ve got to take the time to pick and grind away the time to find out who they are really and what they like. So I’ll just hold my breath to breathe, close my eyes to see and try my best to wait patiently. Something tells me though she just might be worth the wait and it’s gonna be a fun journey of discovery. I just have to be bold enough to be up front and say, if you think you might be falling in love with me, don’t fall in love with my style and when I am looking my best by me just being me. Don’t fall in love with my face and body as time can change all that eventually. No, if you’re going to fall in love with me, love how my heart is and how I always act with honest intention, love that I am not impatient, love that I am protective and never jealous no matter the situation. Love that I love to laugh and the fact that I know when to be a child, when to be a man, love that in everything I do, I do what I can, love that you’ll know where you stand with me, where we are at. If you’re going to love me, you gotta love all of my good and bad, you gotta learn and love my scars and marks, all the flaws, all the imperfect parts of me. Beneath all you see is where you’ll find me. So if you’re going to fall in love, fall in love with me as a whole or don’t fall in love with me at all.”
