Something New

There’s no way to explain

The thoughts running through my brain. 

I give in and give up

And I’m trying not to give too much. 

Rushing headlong into something new

Will only shake me up again

Worse than those last few. 

I like to think you could be everything I want

And everything I need

But let’s be honest

I don’t know you enough to say that’s true. 

 

I can still feel your face under my fingers. 

I memorized it that morning

While listening to the rain. 

Perfectly new and unfamiliar,

I felt like I’d known your touch forever.   

I fell in love with giving up my pain.

 

Honey, is it too soon to tell you

That you’ve got potential? 

I know it’s true,

What I see in you. 

But I don’t know

What you can see in me. 

I’m not carefree,

Mild tempered,

Sweet,

Or anything you may want me to be.

 

Darling, if someone said to you

That you could be

The best thing to ever happen to me,

Would you let me go when I try to run?  

Or, would you hold me close,

Stop me, and watch the morning sun? 

I’m sorry to say

I’m like a nightingale

And fly with the moon.

 

I can still feel your face under my fingers. 

I memorized it that morning

While listening to the rain. 

Perfectly new and unfamiliar,

I felt like I’d known your touch forever.   

I fell in love with giving up my pain.

 

I like your mouth full of words. 

Your cheeks soft and stubbled. 

I like your eyes lighting up

When they meet mine. 

I like your hands intertwined

Or just touching mine,

It just feels right. 

 

I like your thoughts

And thoughtful mind. 

I like your heart,

Its more than kind. 

There’s so much more

That words can’t say. 

I like you more everyday.

 

I can still feel your face under my fingers. 

I memorized it that morning

While listening to the rain. 

Perfectly new and unfamiliar,

I felt like I’d known your touch forever.   

I fell in love with giving up my pain.
