I fell in love with his laugh first
and then the way his nose turned red
whenever he laughed.
I fell in love with the way his eyes shone
in the mid afternoon sunlight,
sparkling like precious jewels.
Next I fell in love with the structure of his hands,
itching to paint his perfectly filed nails.
I fell in love with the wave of his hair
like the Colorado River after a summer rain.
I fell in love with his friendship,
the way he'd talk to me
with a soft voice and quiet eyes,
smiling at every word I said.
But after the superficial things
I fell in love with HIM.
