Words left unsaid.
Through the years you have been the only one.
Because of you, I have eyes for no other. No one could have shifted my focus off of you. The way that you walk with your hands in your pocket, The amount of love in your eyes as soon as you see your mom, The sense of hope in your voice when you talk about your dreams and goals… The smile you make when you’re shy. The way you look down when you’re in deep, deep thought. The way you are so loving, caring, and respectful. The way you bite your lips when you’re hesitant/nervous and cover your smile when you’re embarrassed.
All of these things have made me love you even more. These simple things that you probably don’t even know that you do… They set you apart from everyone else.
I have loved you since I first laid eyes on you. The kind of love I thought I’d never feel towards someone else. The kind of love that sets a fire in my soul and a trembling in my bones. The kind of love that makes you feel absolutely invincible and free.
I have loved you since I first laid eyes on you and for years have had to sit patiently in silence watching you be with girl, after girl. You don’t know pain until you see someone you love, love someone else. Seeing the result of a toxic relationship slowly break you down was heart wrenching… but who was I to speak up?
I have loved you since I first laid eyes on you.
And these… these are the words I’ll never say.
