"I loved all the boys with soft sad eyes and lost souls." -Grace Coddington

When I think about kissing you,
a fire lights in the pit of my stomach,
flames licking my insides the
way you lick your lips before pressing
them to mine.

I'm afraid that you are so much
better in my mind because in
real life you can't make a decision
and every girl is yours to use, but
I imagine us doing dishes while
dancing to Christmas music and
kisses peppering my neck when
your arms protect me from nightly
terrors. It's painted vividly within
my brain, the way you absentmindedly
match your shirt to mine on Tuesdays
or twirl my hair 'round your
slender fingers.

They say that looks can be deceiving
but there is no greater prayer than
me hoping your insides would match
the out.

"When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars you have set in place-- what mortals that you should think of us. Mere humans that you should care for us.
---Psalms 8:3-4

You are a really special girl, and don't ever forget that!

I really like this poem--I smiled while reading it, because it's just so relatable. The beginning of the second stanza reminds me of The Great Gatsby.
