You are hair as black as ink
And shockingly contrasting skin.
I adore the way your too-pale skin
Highlights every mark, freckle, and scar on your body.
You are wide eyes
Composed of a thousand tiny ice crystals.
Yet I’ve only ever felt warmth
Every time they glance in my direction.
You are slouched shoulders
With a stream of insecurities flowing through your head.
Still, you are forever bursting with undeniable passion
Because you can’t control your undying, upbeat spirit.
You are kindness
And so much selflessness.
I want to love like you do
So I can be half as amazing as you have become.
You are a distant dream
That I am lucky enough to keep.
I can see the integrity in you
Like you see the beauty in everyone around you.
I have a confession.
This may or may not be about a celebrity.
Does that ruin the poem? Probably. I only have so much material to work with when my love life is currently nonexistent, okay! Besides, I write about fictional characters all the time (ha, I bet you hadn’t noticed), so it isn’t that much different. I wrote one about Emma Swan and Killian Jones from Once Upon A Time this morning because I’m secretly just a massive fangirl.
If you can guess who this is about, we need to be friends right now. It’s rather obscure though, so I’m not holding my breath. But good luck anyway!
