There's nothing to it, no tricks up my sleeve. Allow me to tie a rope around my heart and see if you take the bate. Just don't pull on it so hard since my heart will tear, fall in your arms and I'll be the only one to blame.

How can I explain to you, that when I saw you my heart decided to play games with my mind. I imagined you holding my hand, and us talking together on the bench with daylight casted on your hazel eyes. My mind said, "No." and my heart interrupted with, "But what if?" 

"I assure you I'm better than this." was my first words I said to you. You replied with, "Don't worry, I'm worse." Why is it that all I can imagine is a future with you? How did you do it? How did you make me imagine only you being at the altar saying, "... Your love is the kind of perfect for me. God knew it, too. It doesn't have to be a question for me anymore, because for you I do." Tell me your secret. How did you make me want you this much? It's surreal even I can't believe it, I don't know if I'm convinced. It's not in a sexual way either, or because of the beauty you hold. I crave your voice echoing in my soul, and your hands; The way it caresses and holds my hand. Hold me for a moment longer if you'd like. When I'm with you, I feel like the hours of the day won't be enough to hold on to. 

As if the stars in your eyes weren't enough, you showed me what I've needed. I needed a glimpse of the moon, too. Your words were just waiting for me. Maybe it was meant to be.

The flaw of fate is people like me. I don't believe in love much, but I believe in you. I think that's all that matters.

And

Yes, I'm aware,

My heart ignores what I already know. 

Maybe it isn't Gods will, but the thing is ... Ever since my heart learned to play the strings in this melodic love story, 

I always saw you.
