that get to
Have you ever been told how beautiful you look every morning?
Have you ever been told how selfless you are even when you’re being selfish?
Have you ever been told how your smile can light up the night?
Have you ever been told how special you are even when you feel so ordinary?
Have you ever been told a lie?© Letters From Alex
If we lived© Letters From Alex
in a world
I would look
in your eyes
what you see
He actually made an effort to visit me.
We talked, and he told me he needed comforting.
His eyes looked like they were filled with sorrow, but I didn’t ask why.
Instead, I gave him what he wanted, no questions asked.
We held each other’s hands.
We stared into each other’s eyes.
We smiled, awkwardly.
I hugged him and he hugged me tighter.
He didn’t want to let me go.
That was the best feeling to feel.
There was a lot of silence.
I could just hear his breathing
and his heart beating.
I didn’t need anything else in this moment.
I was finally intertwined with the person that makes me happiest.
The same person that makes me forget about the world outside this embrace.
We stayed up all night.
We weren’t bored.
We weren’t tired.
We were just… happy.
Don’t regret the things you do.
Regret the things you don’t do.
People always say,
Don’t try to find love.
Love will find you.”

I’m not ready
I miss your arms wrapped around my body.© Letters From Alex
I miss your hands running up and down my spine.
I miss your lips pressed against mine.
Please come over and hold me and make me forget about the world.
Please suffocate me and promise me you won’t let go.
I want you to hug me so tight that I can’t even breathe right.
I’m ready to die in your arms, because I’m finally home again.
