This Is What I Want To Hear From You

“I want to hear about the intense palpitations that you get whenever you start kissing me.”

I don’t want to hear about how it’s hard for you to force yourself to wake up in the mornings; and how you really have to drag your own but out of your bed. 

I don’t want to hear about how you are likely to just take after your parents and you’re just going to end up following the path that they forged for you.

I don’t want to hear about how you are essentially living a life for others, and not a life for yourself.

I don’t want to hear about all the times that you’ve had to go through tough trials and challenges; about how much you have had to endure in your life.

I don’t want to hear about what astrology has to say about your life.

I want to hear about the truth. I want you to tell me the truth. I want you to be really honest and open to me. I want you to dig in deep and talk to me about the things that really matter in life. I want you to be able to access the most inner parts of your core and give me whatever you can find there.

I want to hear about how fascinating you find the clouds in the sky to be; how much they look like white fluffy mountains and yet they’re next to mountains anyway.

I want to hear about the weird feeling that you get in your tummy whenever you stare deep into my eyes. 

I want to hear about the intense palpitations that you get whenever you start kissing me. 

I want to hear about how you start to stutter whenever you are being honest and vulnerable by opening your heart up to me. I want to hear about all of the most random memories that you have of your family when you were a little kid growing up. I want to hear all the stories behind all your body’s scrapes, scars, and bruises. I want to hear about all the kids who bullied you when you were younger and made you cry. I want to hear about the times you got into trouble at school for misbehaving. 


I want to hear about your first time kissing that random kid when you were in high school; about how awkward you felt and how you thought that that would be the start of something new and special between the two of you.

I want to hear about the time you found out you had gotten rejected from your dream college and how you had to settle for a school that you thought was beneath you.

I want to hear about how you were able to get over that hump, and how you made the most out of a difficult situation. 

I want to hear about how you had a difficult time trying to fit in all throughout your life; how you could never seem to relate to anyone else no matter how much you tried. 

I want to hear about how you started experimenting with your best friend and you tried to bring romance into the equation only to have everything blow up in your face. I want to hear about your biggest regrets and your most hard-earned lessons in life. 

I want to hear about all of your biggest dreams and hopes; I want to know about everything that you expect this life to give you. I want to hear about everything that you’re willing to work hard for and achieve. I want to hear about everything that you would be willing to sell your soul for. 

I want to hear about all of your deepest fears. I want to hear about everything that scares and intimidates you. I want to hear about how you are planning to overcome your biggest phobias. 

I want to hear about your travel plans and your thirst for adventure. I want to hear about everything that you want to see in this world and everything that you want to experience. I want to hear about everyone that you hope to meet in this life.

But most importantly, I just want to hear about how much you love me. I want to hear about how much the mere sight of me makes your blood boil. I want to hear about how the slight touch of my skin will be enough to enrage a million fires within you. I want to hear about how a single glance of my eyes will be enough to make you feel like you are melting into goo. I want to hear about how when we kiss, you are tasting the next 50 years of your life. I want to hear about how you think there’s nothing more beautiful than when the sun shines down on my face. I just want to hear you say that you love me now and forever.
