i love liking someone who is not generically attractive
someone that your friends will quickly dismiss
but someone that is so obviously beautiful in your eyes
i think it’s having the ability to see someone as a whole
not just the way everyone else sees them that makes them beautiful
none of my friends will ever see that danger in your smirk
or the silent eagerness in your eyes
in the same way i do
and i love that
let’s spend our week nights eating cereal on the floor
when there is a perfectly fine table behind us.
we can go to the movies and sit in the back row
just to make out like kids falling in love for the first time.
we’ll paint the rooms of our house
and get more paint on us than the walls.
we can hold hands and go to parties we end up
ditching to drink wine out of the bottle in the bathtub.
and slow dance with me in our bedroom
with an unmade bed and candles on the nightstand.
let me love you forever.
