To My Smile:
When I see you looking back at me in the mirror, my heart beats a little louder and my soul feels a little more at home. My thoughts stop running, my breath becomes more alive and I can start to hear the gentle waves of my emotion. Your simplicity is what gets me; it’s a simple choice to be with you, but, such a rewarding one too. And when I am you, nothing gets in our way.
I feel you inside without even looking outside. As my lips curl upwards, my eyes start to sparkle, my cheeks are the best kind of sore and my mind pauses for a second – all seems perfect. When I fully focus on you, all else disappears and you’re all that is there. You, yourself might not be perfect with one tooth longer than the other and lips a little chapped; but that’s just the perfectionist talking. You, as a whole, are always perfect. Nothing comes close to your enchanting magic, because in one moment with you all is always ok.
You happen the most, not when I’m happy, or sad trying to be happy, but when I’m at a peace. Or when my little mind tries to grab my attention, you come, and it becomes lost in your sea of love. When the light of my far away star shines on my aura, nothing feels better than becoming you.
When I think about what makes me happy, I wonder for a second, before my soul ends up landing on a few different things, a few labels. When really, I could just be you and that could be my forever answer. Everything changes and evolves, but you will always be the same, and just writing that line lets me be with you again.
I look for connections and true relationships, when the truest one I’ll ever find is with you. We are one and we are always together, because you are always there. I overthink and I get lost in the unknown, but one moment with you, as you, brings me back. I dream and get stuck in distantly close realities, and then you and I unite, letting me find the place inside me again that is always at home. I go on rollercoasters within and outside, but you are my still space.
I know you’re my reflection, I know you’re my direction – I know you’re me. And together we are free, because love is always more than the eyes can see.
