In the Present

Whoever I’m writing to–

past or future lover,

I wish you were here.

Green

The color of forests
and the color of your eyes.
The color I’m so brave
and so afraid to get lost in.
The only color I love
and hate at the same time.

I envy
the eyes
that get to
see you
every day.

I Have

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?

If we lived
in a world
with no
mirrors,
I would look
at the
reflection
in your eyes
to see
what you see
in me.

Dear friend,

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 cuddled. 
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.

Love always,
Alex

Undiscovered Love

People always say,
“Be patient.
Don’t try to find love.
Love will find you.”

The only problem is,
what if I’m the love
my future lover
is waiting for?

I’m afraid 
to use “he” 
in my poems
because 
I’m not ready
to replace
“you.”
