i had never realized just how lonely i

was, how lonely my soul had been

until we passed each other once

again, our eyes instantly

locked and we came

to a mutual stop,

smitten.

it was as though

our bodies remained

frozen throughout time

itself, the only thing that

truly mattered was our existence

and in that moment, that’s all there was.

your porcelain eyes lit up like a thousand

burning embers reflected within the waves

of a raging storm, so wild and untamed

but there was more you kept hidden.

your soul was not wild nor was it

untamed, your spirit yearned to

be cared for in all the right ways.

you were silently screaming

for someone to notice

and finally say

“i love you.”

and then there was me.

i wanted to feel protected

within my own skin, to finally

feel as though my existence was

not some burden to the rest of

the world, i yearned to be

cared for just as you had.

so we became what the

other so desperately

sought out, we became

the missing light at the end

of the long and unfriendly

tunnel just by reaching out

and grasping onto the three

words we were never able

to genuinely hear before,

“i appreciate you.”

and we became smitten.
