i'm not asking you for a whirlwind romance.
we don't need to be a hollywood couple, just the thick and thin kind.
let me erase the past out of your eyes. haven't you noticed how beautiful optimism looks on you?
this isn't me telling you to hide your feelings.
but can you blame me for wanting to see your hope light up the room?
you're defined by this moment here. step into my arms and just be.
i know you're afraid. but trust me just this once, and i promise i'll be there to catch you.
This is inspired by Jake Scott's song CWJBHN (Can We Just Be Happy Now).

    This is so pretty! Wonderful job; I love the first line especially (and the last, too.)
    Replying: No, Mariposa is actually the Spanish word for butterfly. In French it's papillon, which isn't quite so pretty.

    this is so sweet...! I listened to the song (just so I could "get the picture") but I prefer your piece. I think it's because I can relate to the last 3 sentences really hard hahah. Anyways well done!
