Care

There is a girl who cares for you.

A girl with trembling hands and honeysuckle eyes that wander in every possible direction, but she contents herself to stay steady and strong for you.

There is a girl who cares for you.

She feels awkward and unsure every time she tries to dance, with each of her legs in a constant disagreement over which foot belongs to whom, but she likes it when you spin her in circles on top of your toes.

There is a girl who cares for you.

“Play it one more time,” she says with an emphatic grin because she can’t get enough of the melodic sounds you create with your hands or the uncontrollable crack in your voice whenever she makes your cheeks burn.

There is a girl who cares for you.

She doesn’t consider herself useful in giving support because all she can do is offer advice, but she knows you just want her when you’re breaking apart so she wraps herself around you and musters a smile so you don’t have to.

There is a girl who cares for you.

She doesn’t see you everywhere she turns because she is comfortable knowing that there is no mistaking you for any other person, but pieces of you still live in every crevice of her life – from the corner store where you always buy a soda on the way to the beach to the hundreds of freckles scattered on her arms that you absentmindedly trace when you kiss her.

There is a girl who cares for you.

She knows that you haven’t had an asthma attack in years but she always makes sure you carry your inhaler wherever you go; she knows how much you love seafood and how poorly she cooks it; she knows the reason why you have scars on your wrist shaped like circles despite only telling her the backstory one time when you thought she wasn’t listening; she knows how much you wish your father would treat you more like a son rather than the other way around and she never knows the right thing to say about it; she knows that your car is unreliable and your phone service sucks and she knows that it makes her miss you that much more.

There is a girl who cares for you.

And she knows you care for her too.


 

for him. – Troye Sivan
