they say a picture is worth a thousand words.

i disagree.

when i look into your eyes

the freckles and spots and stardust

i see so much more. i see you.

everything you wanted to say but couldn’t

everything you said and couldn’t take back

every time you reached out and were pushed back

every time you saw me and took my hand

it’s still, but it’s like a movie.

i see me.

i see the good outshining the bad

i see the first time we touched, accidental yet cosmically deliberate

i see all there is to be loved, and i feel it.

i feel us.

in those dazzling colours i feel our first kiss

in those shining stars i hear my name

in those deep wells i see your arms outstretched

in your eyes, i know everything.
