How I Want to Fall In Love In 2016
Love

I want to fall in love swiftly, quickly and abruptly, yet slowly and softly all at once.

I want to fall head over heels this year. By the very end of 2016, I want to be bursting at the seams of all my scars with a love burning happily in my heart. I want to be drunk on romance and swimming in the clouds alongside my dreams.

I want to do this solely on my own, so I may get acquainted with love in this peculiar way. I'd like to fall in love singularly, yet with so many, many different things. I want to push past lust and flout infatuation. I don't want to settle for mediocre or an imitation.

I want the authentic feeling that surpasses dreaming — a love that's true and never fleeting. I want this for myself as well as for you. I'd like it for the world, if possible. 

I want every fear I've ever held in the darkest parts of my heart transformed into the purest desire for truth. I want to feel the magic of love singing my soul to sleep.

This is how I want to fall in love in 2016.

Falling for you will be like the sun, the world, the views, the fears, the dreams, the stories, the shore, the scenes, and every sweet noise trundled into one gallant blow to the heart. You, you're going to hit me hard.  

So I would like to fall in love many times this year, so that I may know how extraordinary you are when you appear, because you will be beyond every single thing. You will be everything I've ever loved in a single touch and a single glance.

I must fall in love this year so I can understand the magnitude of what you will be — of what you will mean to me, and I to you. I want to be ready for the cataclysmic revolution that you will cause in my heart, because you will destroy me in every best way.

That's how I want to fall in love in 2016. I want to know love before I know you. I want to feel its essence and understand its woes. I want to fall in love this way so that I'm full of so much love to hand to you, and I'm waiting patiently for the day when I can give it all to you.

This is how I want to fall in love this year, because I know love will never be enough once you're here.
