Locked and Loaded

She will love you with the smoking barrels of her heart, taking aim with itchy trigger fingers.  She’s removed the safety allowing herself to be reckless with you, choosing to love first and ask questions later.  You’ll fall for her before the shells even hit the floor, wondering, maybe, you shouldn’t have removed the bulletproof vest.  Because you’ll feel it in your chest, the way she takes your breath away, it will hurt sometimes, there may be pain, but a pain that makes you feel alive.  Because at the end of the day, you’ll fight for her the same way you will fight to breathe, the same way you fight to live.  You can’t help but fall in love with her and you can’t stop loving her, because your body’s natural instinct, your only instinct, is to love her back.
