2 months after she started…hehehehe…sorry it took so long
“I feel like a part of my soul has loved you since the beginning of everything. Maybe we’re from the same star.”
It wasn’t love at first sight.
I didn’t truly believe in that
even the hopeless romantic that I was.
You need more of a connection than your eyes meeting
to know you’re going to love someone.
When you start talking,
you just know.
You immediately feel like
there’s something there-
a part of you
that you hadn’t discovered before.
Of course when our eyes met
when I walked into that dreary Spanish classroom
with its even more depressing teacher,
I looked down shyly.
Because you were beautiful-
with your short wavy messy hair
your defined jaw
your skin- with corded muscle hidden just beneath,
even your height – perfect – taller than me just enough
so I could tilt my head up
and our lips would meet.
You had no idea-
you still don’t-
just how much
I imagined us together-
your arms around me.
How many times I wondered
if your lips were as soft as they seemed.
You could ask me
what a word meant in Spanish
because I was ahead of the class
and my heart would melt.
I had no defense
How could anyone?
They couldn’t know
that they’d meet
something as gorgeous as you.
So maybe it wasn’t love at first sight
but it sure as hell was something.
