Don’t fall in love with me, I don’t want to fall for you
Shared by Diana Georgia Marcos
You have that smile that anyone could fall for. You’ve got those almond-shaped eyes I have adored since the very first time I saw you. It is beautiful how they taper and it’s not every day that I see a person who is supposed to have big blue eyes genetically but has the same eye shape as I do. I like the way your eyes seem nonexistent when you try to smile; and the way your lips curve upwards. You have no idea how they could make anyone’s life one hundred times better. Your well sculpted body is like a clone of a higher being, and you have almost all of the incredible talents that makes me want to wish I were you. You are amazing. You are achingly…beyond beautiful.
I like how even the simplest things you do could make me smile. You always knew how to make my day a whole lot brighter than it ever was. Sometimes I think it is too good to be true. I think that you only make me feel good about myself so I could make you feel the same way. Most people I know are like that. They give, so they could get something in return.
Despite all of this, I still think you are amazing. The light in you still shines brightly…and I don’t want you to waste that light on me.
I don’t want you to fall in love with me. When I look at you, I think of all the things you could do. You have the world in your hands. You could do anything you want to do. You could dream of something in a moment, and make it real a few minutes after. You could wish for something and be able to have it in an instant. You have a bright path ahead of you, and I do not want to be the one to switch off all the lights that brighten it.
I do not want to fall for you. I am a person with too many anxieties. I have lots of fears, and I am scared I wouldn’t have to push you away. You would do it on your own. You would realize that being with me would not be the best decision you would ever make. I am territorial and needy. You would feel suffocated with all the love I would shower you. I am both romantic and sentimental at the same time. My inner drama queen would push you down to your limit, and you would realize how toxic it was being with me.
I don’t want those things to happen. It is merely because it would leave me devastated. I have been in my most vulnerable state before, and it took me a lot of courage to stand on my feet. I have learned to guard my heart by planting roses around it. It was calloused by the thorns that grew gradually over the years, and I wouldn’t want you to remove them just to find out how wounded my heart was. I wouldn’t let you find out that despite the barricade I put up around my heart, there is still a part of me that hopes you would go against all odds to conquer it and make it your own.
I don’t want you to fall in love with me because I might fall in love with you, too. And I am not a fan of give-and-take.
