Falling's a Fear

I can't be... 
not really... 
it's not possible.. 
but I can't stop myself.  

The way you look,  
the way your smile has a crookedness to it. 
How you talk with ease,  
completely and utterly smooth.  

How you stop me with one glance,  
making me freeze like ice. 
Your hands gentle and kind, 
moving slowly and steady with everything you do. 

When you walk by my life brightens, 
turning into an amazing sunrise. 
Your laugh that makes me smile, 
makes me feel...feel real. 

But I'm scared... 
Not of you, 
but of the thing that lingers between. 
Falling. 
Falling so hard that I fall past you and hit the ground. 

You take my breath away,  
make me feel alive and warm. 
But if I'd fall for you, 
would you do the same. 

Or let me crash and hurt myself. 
That's what I fear. 
I fear falling in love with you.
