i've been trying to get close to you, my dear.
after all, it's been an entire year.
and it's true that we fell in love,
and then something went terribly wrong.
i've never been a fan of spring,
but april came around, and you impressed me.
and it all went downhill from there,
i was addicted to our toxic love affair.
i haven't written a word for many months.
my brain has been so tired and numb.
so, maybe this means i'm no longer in shock.
my heart is relearning how to walk.
we're like lions in the hills.
slow to attack, but quick to kill.
with each kiss that we shared,
i let my guard down, and was unprepared.
but that was then, and this is now.
and, i hope that you're doing well.
make sure you lock my screen door!
tonight, there'll be no footsteps on my floor.
will you kiss me when you leave?
i guess i'll just have to wait and see.
