you’ll never see it if you don’t want to.
the way she looks at you when you’re not looking. the way she talks of you, not about you. the reasons behind her actions. the motives behind her passion. the feelings. the care. the good she could be for you. the way she could eliminate your stress. the reason she’s been patient with your stubborn, temperamental flaws. the reason she apologizes when she’s pushed too far or says okay when she knows it’s really because you’re mad. the little things she does just because. the secrets she wants to know. the past that will reveal your road, your experiences. the trust she has in what you’ve told her. the trust she wants you to have in her. her faith in the mystery of the unknown. the honesty. the interest she takes in your dreams, desires, and work. the support she gives. the help she offers. the kisses that could heal your scars. the road you could pursue. her deep desire to love your body every night because you do something amazing for her. the way you’ve changed her. the way she could change you. the chance you’re being hesitant on, making excuses for. the possibilities you’re blocking out. the fears that keep you at bay. how much she cares for you, likes you. her feelings. her heart.
you’ll never see it unless you want to. until you stop running and let her in.
