PROMPT: Tiny Love Story

9
Of sleepless nights
and tears shed
glistening on my cheeks
or falling onto pages

Of holding hands
and the whisper of touch
of closing my eyes
and feeling you beside me

Oh, how much I love you.

Of people who aren't real
but are always there for us
of screens and the faces
that show up in my dreams

You are what I am, 
you are what I have become.

Oh, how much I love you.

You are special-
you are not like them,
you might not be perfect 
but you are enough

But no, you can't love me back.

    Wait, do you guys know what this is about? Just wondering if it's obvious enough... thank you for the sweet comments!

    "Caught in a landslide/ No escape from reality..." That aside, this is beautifully written. There's an emotion captured in here that I don't really know *how* to describe but you managed to do it better than I ever could. I love this a lot. <3

    I saw the title and starting singing
    "Is this the real life
    Is this just fantasy
    Caught in a landslide
    No escape from reality"

    So I do love the poem
