Chivalry

Chivarly - Ran Kime
I will hold the door for you in Valhalla

I want to leave something.

Something behind.

Is it music? Words?

Memories of dangling dreams just outside our peripheral?

Perhaps.

I want to hold the door for you,

walk into a bar, and own the night.

I want to hold your hand and make you feel safe.

I want to know, that you know, that I know, that we are one.

Tonight.

Last night.

Forever.

Leave chivalry at the door,

don’t question it,

just love me, don’t judge me.

The demand runs deep.

I want me to know that you know, that I know, it’s all inside us,

on the outskirts of our perceptions.

Judged in the moment,

reflected on the ride home.

I want you to know I love you.

And I will wait for you.

I will hold the door for you in Valhalla.
