they say a picture is worth a thousand words.
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.
