Like a Sure Thing

I no longer wish to be loved childishly. I want to be loved with the strength and charm of maturity. I don't want to be smothered by the fear of jealousy and insecurities. I don't want a relationship based solely upon shutting the world out and locking each other in.

I want to be somewhere I can breathe. Where, even in the midst of a million people with a million heartbeats surrounding me, I can still know the sound and nod my head to the rhythm of the One I call "home."

I call you home.

I want you to be fearless with me, to grab my hand and walk through everything with me.

I don't want to be loved like every second you are scared to lose me.

I want to love you hard and rough with enough trust to fold this planet in half. I want you to trust me, and let it magnify. I want to love you in a way that will last, without the weight of the past. I want to be loved in a way that whatever we have is fated, destiny.

I want to love you like a sure thing.
