N.B. for people who know how to love deeply
deep love is like being sat at the bottom of a swimming pool
with your goggles on and feeling like you’re a different species.
it’s alien in all the ways you’ve ever dreamed of them being
and you just have to be in a car one night for it to slam you.
you’re the reason you crash and you’re the reason your heart’s skipping
double-dutch and it’s beating harder than the bass in your eyes.
deep love is a whole new game
and you never find it.
it finds you.
