If Only

If Only

If only you knew the effect you have on me. The times I have awoken to your gaze are that of waking to a fire. A sky of orange, of red, and warmth. Everything inside of me is going up in flames; the smoke surrounds me, and I am suffocated by the scent, the feel – the pleasure – of you.

If only you could take me away from here. I could fall into your arms – you could carry me; I would carry you. We could stumble together, but no matter where our feet journeyed, my hand would remain in yours.

If only you knew the power you have over me. Not in a controlling way, but in one where I feel my heart tug when you are not around. Where I catch my breath when you whisper my name. Where I understand that some sort of heaven exists when my lips are between yours.

If only you understood the love I have for you. Not because I fell for you – I loved you long before that. From the way your eyes smile to the way your brow furrows when you’re deep in concentration, I love you as an entire being. As everything you once were, everything you hope to be, and everything you are. I have learned about your past, relished the present with you, and I pray that the future holds a spot for me.

  1. “If only you understood the love I have for you. Not because I fell for you – I loved you long before that.” Such a powerful quote. Truly speaks to true love and how it’s meant to be. Reminds me of when people say “I loved you long before I met you.”
