“Because You’re You”


I love you. Your face is irrelevant. I love you because you’re you.

you know why i don’t really care
about how you look?
too many beautiful people broke
my heart before.
what they had, outside of them,
was the opposite of
what was inside of them;
and honestly,
i already know how you look;
but what attracted me, to you,
is your overall personality.
as you showed me:
how patient you were with me;
how intelligent you are;
how hard you could make me laugh;
how attentive you are when i speak.
those qualities,
they make you so endearing to me;
and, the fact that when you aren’t with me,
i find myself missing you. a lot.
so now,
i don’t care about
how physically attractive you are.
you have seduced me by being you;
and now,
i already love you.
whatever face you have.

“The Truth In Your Eyes”


Show Text

i can see the truth in your eyes.
no need to deny it.
for, why can’t you just tell me
that you already like me, too much?
why not say that you love me?
because, admitting it might help.
mayhap, it’ll fix the issue.
we’ll work it out, somehow.
i see it. i feel it.
i just need you to own up to it.
for if you do;
then, i’ll share you a secret, too:
i love you, too.
