a deeper blue

a deeper blue

You turned my way and flashed a smile

    That beautiful, captivating smile

 

And in that moment I swore I was falling in love with you…

How could I not?

 

Everything about you was made for me to love

Your hair, always holding the same crooked part

Your eyes, a deeper blue than the pacific

    Your head, which would tilt back whenever you laughed

 

But in moments like those I am forced to stop myself

    For I know that this is not love

 

I love your external being

But it’s just the mere surface of all the wonder you possess

 

You’ve yet to even notice I exist

I’ve been here for so long

 

And in that moment I swore you’d never love me.
