despacito

little by little

I let him into my world

opening a window to my soul here,

a door to my heart there,

but only because he keeps knocking.

 

little by little

I find more and more reasons

to let down my guard.

    I wasn’t going to read this, because I dislike the song you’ve named your poem after, but I’m glad I clicked! 😁👌

    1. Haha I didn’t name it after the song- despacio means “slowly” in Spanish (my first language) which is what the piece talks about. Thank you for your feedback! I really appreciate it ❤️
