falling in love with her

September 5, 2020



falling in love with her was like discovering eternity
in a mundane body; in the flesh, where promises mean 
everything as they tickle your skin; with words that
fall from lips in the form of pleasantries. and it wasn't
suppose to end up like this, me loving her the same
time i realized being with you only hurt me. i stopped
picking flowers over boys when she handed me her name,
because all i wanted to do was give her an untouched 
bouquet of everything. so every night i lie in bed and think
about what my daddy said, you can tell a lot from a man's hands,
it's a woman's eyes that're hard to read. 
then i'll close
my eyes and see the pearls of inevitability in the shape of
her eyes, wondering if a lifetime is even enough to depict
the smallest sliver of them. all i need is for her to tell me she
loves me; let's start there, shall we?
brought back my short poetry, please enjoy.
