Let Me


Trying to invite love into ourselves
Is like trying to cross a tight rope on top of deep water
When you fail to balance yourself, you’ll fall
And so you continuously dive in the air

Trying to love someone
Is diving into a small narrow dark hole
There’s no visionaries available
But you still make the jump

Trying to think you have a shot at love
Is like riding a car sinking into the ocean
It will cut your breath and drown you
You won’t be able to get out of it.

So if this is love, why do we still fall?
If we knew we’re only going to be hurt
Why do we do it? Why do we still strive for it?
What’s with love anyways?

Love, in its old-fashioned way, makes us strong
When we love, we learn to fight for something
That we want to last forever
Even if the universe forbids

Love is much more than just liking someone who is likable
We care and give it to imperfect people
And we still love them despite their flaws
And you know what? It makes us feel alive

Falling in love is scary, full of danger
It won’t always beget the things we expect
It will fall under our expectations
Some are just lucky

What I’ve learned from that boy is that
It’s fun to walk on a tight rope
It’s so great to dive into a dark hole
It’s okay to stay in a sinking car

Because for the first time, I don’t need permission to love
I don’t need reassurance
Because me loving is a judgment of my character
Not anyone else’s

When I jump off that cliff because of love
Not knowing if there will be a cushion of reciprocated love beneath
I should be okay
I believe I’d do fine

When I fall restlessly, the air will be flowing against me
That feeling will be very relaxing and I would never feel the same gush of risk ever again
When I fall to the bottom whether it be cushioned or not
I’d be okay because for one, the wind was rising because of me
