i fell in love with the way she smiles and the way her eyes light up every time she’s overwhelmed by her surroundings. her eyes are pure love.
i fell in love with the way she moves her body back and forth when she’s laughing so hard and the way she throws her head back with that big smile on her face.
but i see her bad days and the downs in her life, times when she smiles but her eyes don’t, times when she immediately looks down after she put that fake smile on to erase the worries people give.
i see how she cries and tries to prevent the tears run down her cheeks, how she wants to look strong. i see how she doesn’t smile anymore, the sadness on her eyes covers her lovely face.
but i fell in love with her more and more, with all of her vulnerabilities, with all of her weaknesses. she is love. i fell in love with her, and by her i mean all of her with no expectations. i fell in love not just with her skins and bones but with her soul. and all i know is her soul is streaked with gold.
