She laughed at my joke,
Her mouth wide open,
Crinkles formed by her eyes
And if someone could look away from that masterpiece
And look at my face instead,
They’d know what love looked like.
I smiled softly,
– her laughter
That sound made sense to me when nothing else did.
The first time I met her,
my eyes locked into hers
Her eyes held the sunset
She smiled and asked me my name
why was my heart beating so fast?
everything I thought I knew ,
I didn’t anymore.
I think my life was in the Stranger Things Universe
Because it was upside down.
All my happiness seemed to radiate from her presence
all I wanted
Was to talk to her
Sing with her
Take stupid poloroids with her
I wanted her to hold my hand,
Stroke my hair
I craved the taste of her soft lips against mine
But I knew
Every part of me knew this was wrong
I should not feel this way
it’s not normal!
the world shouted.
And I tried to stop myself from feeling anything at all,
Everytime I heard her voice
Everytime I felt her skin brush against mine
That look she had when she got excited
The way she moved her hands through her long hair-
With every little thing she did
She made the ordinary , extra in my mind.
I’d never felt this way
It was new
this is wrong! it’s not love
Everybody seemed to say
Yet the butterflies in my belly told me something else.
if this wasn’t love,
well then I didn’t want love
I wanted her.
