but you said it.
and i said nothing.
light was hidden behind your eyes.
you didn’t let me see it.
cracked windows and cracked houses all the same.
broken bodies hide broken spirits.
and i prayed at least a thousand times.
i am here.
i wish minds were like movies;
at least i could pause mine.
i thought i could hide myself in you.
but it was through you i was exposed.
even when i was younger i expected life to be duller than i had hoped.
yet that didn’t stop me from hoping.
what stops me now?
but you are the very opposite of dull.
you are brilliant in color,
splendid in voice.
my heart yearns for the purity of your love.
