what it is like to love an introvert who feels deeply

It is like waking every morning

waiting for smoke signals 

to see if there will be any volcano eruptions today

it’s tiptoeing on hot coals, but you are on your hands and knees

it’s like being at the top of a rollercoaster and waiting for the descent

it's free falling out of an aeroplane without a parachute

it’s staying indoors and watching movies 

even though the sun is shining

it’s apologising without reason

buying chocolate ice-cream after midnight

it’s moving to another country 

because they asked for it 

and then getting blamed for leaving

it’s lending your lungs so they can keep breathing

it’s feels like you are the only person in the world in their eyes

and you couldn’t imagine ever being loved so deeply
