…when you leaned towards my face,
you bent the continent in half just to have a moment in the sun with me.
I never really understood how someone so iridescent could love me.
because when I look into the mirror-
I see a back without a spine,
a mind without its sense that is common.
I see a million of butterflies, fluttering words of insecurity and winds of whispered failures .
yet you have cleaned my hamper, overflowing with loud mistakes-
you have buried all my doubts and clustered nerves.
Because when I am yanked by the color of your iris; I forget my name.
My tongue begins to weigh bricks.
muscles contract into a blissful, easy moment of security.
when you smile at me;
It’s as if you gathered all the constellations of the sky
and allowed me to feed off stardust —
infinities of sweet jokes and safe embraces.
In my life, I have ripped so many other’s names right out of my smile and replaced them- tried to have my heart pulsate with their name.
None seemed to ever match the beat-
The symphony of my heart.
But your name-
Every syllable flows throughout my body.
wraps around my bones, leaps with heart, and fills my lungs with the truth
I don’t know how I became so lucky,
but as I live this life with you ; I’ll find out. 🌙💡💙
