The Smile In Your Eyes

January 31, 2019

Love
is the way I crave
the smile in your eyes
and the vanilla ice cream
you know to buy
without a second thought...

Love
is the hand
that I run through your
hair
to mess up your
perfectly imperfect tousle
before I
hide behind the couch
with a grin
plastered
to my face...

Love
is the chuckle
the endless guffaw
the soul-hurting giggle
I get
watching you eat spaghetti
with sauce on your
chin...

Love
is the push you give me
into the
pool
when you realise
that I painted your room
hot pink
and glitter bombed
your locker...

Love
is the gentle kick
under the table
and the subtle nudge
of your shoulder
when you need me to keep
a secret
promising me
a chocolate chip cookie to keep my mouth
shut...

Love
is the ear splitting sound
of our singing in the car
and dancing in the rain
to sappy tunes of
heartbreak
chances
and hope...

Love
is the lace on my shoe
that you stop to tie up
worrying
that I will trip and tumble
off a cliff
while hiking
and fall victim to the jaws of
forest bears...

Love
is the polished coin
you give me to pay for my
lunch...

Love
is the black scrunchie
I flick at your forehead
letting my hair flow free
as you rant over
the dangers
of standing near
a bunsen burner...

Love
is the ticking clock
as we text into the night
muffling our laughter with heavy blankets
cringing as we
simultaneously
watch cat videos
without
waking our siblings...

Love
is the soft smile
that I force my face to hold
and the clenched fist
that I hide inside my pocket
fighting the urge
to cry
as you thank me
for being your
best friend.
