oh you
you give me butterflies
dip down to wipe away my happy tears
carrying my hopes to the sun
dandelions on the breeze
soft as your touch
and the grass tickles our skin as we lay
and watch the clouds
cotton candy as sweet as your words
this
this is happiness

oh you
you fill me up inside
my hours are spent dreaming of you
you lift my face to the sky
you hold me close and whisper goodnight
a longing in my ribs that always speaks your name
the crickets are your orchestra,
the stars are your kin
wrapping us in a gown of moonlight
this
this is hope

oh you
you captivate my thoughts
make me check my phone in the middle of the night
to see if you've messaged
you fill my sleepy eyes with dreams
of golden days and laughter
each little note you send
makes me lighter and lighter
phone calls everyday
swallow the sound of your voice and
brush my hair from my face
this
this is love

    the title is my favourite part ahh!! i’m such a sucker for cute/unique titles and this is just perfect! it could’ve went in so many directions like “oh, you...” (guilt/sad tone) or like “oh. you.” (disappointed/nonchalant tone) “oh you!” (like when someone laughs something off but they’re clearly hiding something)

    I don’t know if you got any of that ^ but my point is that the “oh you” opening line and title turned out to be like a surprised tone “oh you” which makes it so sweet when you read on to find out the poem is in the direction of love, that’s always the right direction! Nice work (and sorry if you don’t really get this comment, it’s kind of late for me and my brain is tired ahaha)
