I want to be loved like how they show it in the movies

I want

i want to be loved so passionately and intensely that i forget what it felt like to be unloved

i want to be cherished like in the books I’ve read that have completely altered my perception of what love really is

i want to be cared like it is in the movies, where my dream house is built for me

i want to be the first thing that comes to their mind in the morning, and the last thing they think about at night

i want to be loved so ardently and diligently that i forget what it felt like to be unloved

i want the kind of love where we are dancing in the kitchen at 3 am

i want the “just hold my hand” kind of love

i want the kind of love that finally makes you understand why you want to be in love

not being truly loved makes the romanticism of it easier.

i wonder if my heart questions my morality and if it’s a curse that i dream the way i do

i have no sense of the blurred lines between reality and fantasy when it comes to this kind of love

and i am so deeply stricken by my ignorance of love, that if i were to be loved properly

i would do it an injustice and ruin it all.
