This wasn’t supposed to happen. You weren’t in my plans.
I wasn’t anticipating another dating escapade. I wasn’t preparing to give another guy a chance to come into my world.
I’d dismissed the thought of wasting time on one more silly relationship. I’d written off the fruitless pursuit of love.
My heart was guarded and damn sure comfortable in its armored enclosure. But you managed to disregard the wall and find a way in.
Vulnerability was banned from my vocabulary. But you reintroduced it with your generosity.
Falling for you wasn’t on the agenda. But you penciled it in with your intimacy.
I fought you — I fought this — out of fear every step of the way because one heartbreak was enough to last me a lifetime.
But you showed me that living in fear isn’t living at all.
So my heart is bare and my feelings are raw. Wherever this journey takes us, let it be amazing and intense and unprecedented.
