If you date me... (Spoken Piece)

If you date me
take note that my eyes will shine different,
You saying yes is the same thing as lighting a match in them.
It will light quick and when left alone,
Burn things in me you weren't aware were your responsibility,

I call that heartache.

If you date me,
Allow me to be the big spoon,
Because I have put so much practice into my pillows,
That they are damp with my failure,

Know that I probably can't pick out the perfect necklace without you there,
Because I can't see your eyes quizzing me on how well I know you.

If you date me,
I hope my hoodies will learn the curvature of your body,
Better than it learned to soak in my freshly showered hair,

Know that I consider meals like ramen and pasta,
Products of my good cooking, 
Because to be honest,
I think it can bring more laughs than a fancy restaurant.

If you date me, 
Expect nothing less than 2 facetimes a day,
Because I need to guarantees that the last face I see, 
Is that of the person I'm fallen in love with.

It will always be a need to hear your laugh,
And hear you tell me again how much you hate it.

If you date me,
You're going to get a raw piece of my heart,
A piece that is soaked in tears and shampoo
That comes alive at night,
When the veil of "I'm Okays" finally falls.

If you date me,
Know that if you treat me like shit,
I'm still going to feel like you deserve more.
Because I'm bad at love.
Really fucking bad.

If you date me,
I'm going to fall in love with you,
Because at the end of the day I chose you.

That little piece of my heart feels safe in your rib cage.
Here's another love poem from a hopeless romantic.

    Though it's a beautiful piece, I'd suggest you to use 'f**K" instead of the complete word because I think they might take the piece down for language. Also for your competition, do you have any specific format for spoken pieces because I haven't written any before, wuld love your suggestion.
