My Last Day As A Bachelor

Let Her Go

How Long Can You Go Without Sex?
July 23, 2016

I was holding on to the coveted title of a bachelor but you are the type to make me want to give up that legend

I was holding a disdain for weddings but you are the type to make me want to don a tuxedo and strap on a bow tie and not care about anything else

I was holding on to the crowded space I call relationship but you are the type to make me want to make us the only world I know

I was enjoying my conversations with ghosts. They never talked back but you are the type that makes me want to have a real conversation with a human

I was worried about the past repeating itself but you are the type that makes me want to look forward to the future

I was having dreams about multiple beautiful strangers but you are the type that makes me want to dream about one beautiful stranger

I was content with not giving it all but you are the type that makes me want to love with all my might

I have never been the one to fall in love that easily but you are the type that makes me want to drown in the sea of love

I am not one for poetry and valentines but you are the type that makes me want to come home with a teddy bear in one hand and a bouquet of red roses in another

I am used to tip-toeing on egg shells around beautiful strangers but you are the type who makes me want to feel my feet firmly on the ground again 

I was comfortable with things going wrong at some point but you are the type that makes me fear facing a day without a smile on your face

You are my type

To the world, you are You

To me, you are a miracle

I am the lucky one

Tonight is my last day as a bachelor 

My life begins all over again when the sun comes up tomorrow
