"People should come with warning signs,
Like the ones you see on the back of chemicals,
Warning signs saying I’m an asshole
Or I’m a pathological liar
Or I have an extreme foot fetish, what size shoe do you wear?
If I handed you my warning sign, it’d be a list…
A Warning sign saying that I am no where near perfect,
Nor would I ever want to be.
A Warning sign saying that the volume has to be an even number or else I’ll sit there and only concentrate on how my mind tells me the sound isn’t quite as right as it could be, if only it were on an even number then things would be alright.
A Warning sign saying that yes, for about .04 seconds I am more excited to see my waiter bring me my food than I am to sit in front of your warming presence.
A Warning sign saying that water has to be present when eating ice cream or there will be no ice cream.
A Warning sign saying that sometimes my head overflows with thoughts and no I do not need saving but yes I do need your hand to hold because it can be awfully scary in these storms but i’d ride out any storm if it meant I had your hand in mine.
A Warning sign saying that yes I see this world as a beautiful place, in which I hope to explore but it’s reality can overwhelm me and the news will never be a channel I’ll watch.
A Warning sign saying I will embarrass you by asking “May I have this dance?” in the middle of isle 6, but there’s no point in asking because half way through the question, I’ll already have taken your hand in mine, I’ll never take no for an answer.
A Warning sign saying I’ll always carry the weight of your demons on my shoulders so long as you stay strong through the night but answer me when I call, because sometimes my own demons come in sight.
A Warning sign saying my heart is a garden and the walls are very high but take the time to see inside because I promise, it’s one of a kind.
A Warning sign saying i haven’t loved the right person yet, and yes I did get burned, and sometimes the scars still show.
A Warning sign saying please never startle me because I’ll hate everything about this planet, including you, for
.08 seconds until I can make my heart slow down.
A Warning sign saying I like to get lost from time to time because most misadventures turn into priceless stories, and that’s how I found my favorite spot.
But at the end of the list, there’d be a little note:
Exist with me, we’d do so beautifully."
I want to be kissed angrily.
I want a girl who has had an extremely bad day and is mad at the world, shove me against a wall and kiss me until both our lips start to bruise. I want her to pour out all the anger shes feeling and shove it down my lungs, and then I want to push back. Not with force but with air, I want to turn that anger into love and turn the bruising kiss soft. I want to remind her that life is too beautiful to hate.
