desperate to defend

don’t forget how far I travelled
even when the cost of time
seemed as steep as it could be
pouncing on a thought like a lion
even teeth as sharp as those don’t scare
reading glasses calmly on my face, steady
as I take you in
then ready as I will ever be
either we stay here or go out
to be honest, as long as I am with you
on a mountain or under the ocean, I don’t care
don’t ask any reason why because
every word there is, is not enough
for what I need to describe
exceeding the hopes I had in you
nothing excites me like you do
do you mind staying around forever
