New Love

Our eyes meet

and all the words I've ever written

mean nothing.

You speak

and the world around me floats away.

With your hand in mine

everything that's ever happened

with anyone else,

the fighting, the lying

and all the tears I've shed,

they never happened.

Because, with you,

the possibilities outweigh potential for disaster

and the way I'm feeling

rises above all the shit I've been through.

With you the past stays in the past

because you give me hope.
