My Favored My heart beats faster when you are near. I can not think straight. I have been blindsided by a moving truck, that has no tangible substance. Your beauty is breathless, as that is the feeling I have... I can not keep up with the dreams that I wish to make... with you. The hopes that I want to dare... with you. Nothing in my life will be the same, ever. I will long to learn to replay time. I will build a machine. I will travel back and forth, again and again, replaying every day from the first moment to the last, even smaller than a second. The sound of echoes across the span, angels weeping not with sadness but joy. They laugh as I dance for God. I make a fool of myself, only... and for you. I stand on the wide oceans beach, and am ready to swim. I stand at the cliffs edge, and I am ready to fly. But if I drown so be it, But if I fall, I die. I will have lived long enough, to have loved beyond, all thought ever possible, and humbly measured not by tape or rule, but of faith, empathy.
