To Someone Who Already Knows

March 24, 2019

PROMPT: Love in Words

You're cute.
But you already know that.
Even if you didn't shove it in the face of everyone who tried to tell you otherwise,
I can see it in your walk.
You already know.
And it's not like you aren't humble,
because you'll scream it to the rooftops
that you don't know shit.
But nobody does.
And you already know.
The smirk in your eyes and the spring in your step dazzles me.
Leaves me helpless.
You talk like a teacher with something to say.
You came out during your own philosophy project-
just to prove a point about love.
You said humans as a society will always have love.
I personally, as a human, agree. 
Because I can feel it around you.
Also, those historically accurate sources and reasoning in MLA format with homemade infographics were pretty convincing.
But I digress.
I learned that phrase from you.
You're so far above everyone else I feel like I can't keep up.
So every day I am motivated to be better.
Because I have somewhere to be-
With you.
You shine.
I'd say "like the sun" but that doesn't capture it.
You shine like the ocean does.
Like the pitch black feathers on a raven.
Like a sparkler, or fire, or an explosion.
You're the shine on the grim reaper's scythe, in his eyes,
Maybe that's what I mean when I say I want to die.
But I don't really.
I just want to understand the humor of the generation I didn't meet because I was lost inside my head and my home.
I wouldn't just die for you.
I would live for you.
For what you stand for, because I am connected to you in a way more real than what I can understand.
Because you're amazing.
But you already know that.
