"I'm Not Perfect," Said the Prince to the Princess

Prince: I come to you asking for forgiveness.
Princess: But you haven't done anything wrong! Or have you?
Prince: I haven't my dear.
Princess: Then why have you come for my forgiveness?
Prince: Because I am without fault. I fear I will disappoint you someday.
Princess: Don't fear that my love. Do you love me?
Prince: I do.
Princess: Let your heart guide you then, if you truly love me, you can do no wrong.
Prince: But I'm not faultless.
Princess: You don't have to be. As long as you keep me close to your heart, I can live with all the flaws the world can throw at us.
Prince: Can you live with my flaws?
Princess: Why do I want someone that's perfect? That would mean I wouldn't have your flaws, which means you wouldn't be you.
Prince: Perfect is perfect though!
Princess: Perfect is perfect, but I didn't fall for perfect, I fell in love with your flaws.
I will show you mercy because I have felt how much pain this can cause. I will let you go because I know it’s what you truly want. I won’t hold on, if your heart wishes to let go. I won’t cling to you, if you have unhooked your claws. I’ll show mercy because I know what it feels like when your world is ripped apart and all you can do is stand there watching helplessly. I’ll show mercy because I know what it feels like to be with someone you don’t want to be with.

I’m not sure why I am apologising. I apologise when I’m angry, sad, frustrated, annoyed, jealous, hurt, disappointed, betrayed and feeling as if I have failed myself. Am I sorry for showing my emotions, for showing how I really feel?
Forgive me, I have lost myself within you and I’m unstable. I might or might not be reasonable or get angry. I’ll get jealous and I will hurt because I can’t stand being one more second away from you. Loving you is the best thing that’s happened to me and I’m learning to handle it.

You don’t need to worry about me because I chose you. When I wake up tomorrow, I’ll choose you. And the day after that, and the week, the month and every year that follows. I’ll choose you. Every. Single. Time.

Your lies are like water; colourless, tasteless, freezes into ice, boils and can eat through the largest rocks on Earth. Even the most noble of rocks didn’t see how audacious the water can be. Each drop, each lie, was carving the rocks until only parts of them remained. Even when you have been corroded, your formations and all the lessons you have learned, have made your soul so beautiful, so strong.

There’s something about you that I love. When I speak, you’re paying attention to everything I am saying. The way you look at me gets me excited about all the dumb things I’m talking about and you’re really interested in everything. I love that about you! You hear me, you’re genuinely excited and that makes me so happy. You listen to me. You block everything out like it’s just you and me in this world. I haven’t told you this before, but this important to me. You’re important to me.

I fear loving you. I don’t know if I should fall so deep, because I don’t know if you will love me tomorrow, or next week or next month or if you will just, walk away. I feel like I’m always on my toes, always tiptoeing across your mind, across your heart so I don’t disturb you, and overwhelm you. I am always pretending I’m not anxious in front of you. But I am, you don’t understand! I don’t want you to go, I’m scared … I want you to be scared with me and tell me it’s okay.

Sometimes you need to fall. It’s the only way you will be able to let go of the things you hate, the things that keep your roots entangled in polluted soil. The things you won’t let go.
