When I first saw him, I quickly looked away stunned by how my heart had jumped. He was beautiful. I counted the seconds praying to God that he would say something to me, and he did. Since then there have been too many instances where we have clicked, and I am trying to not let the dreamer in me think that I have met someone who I always dreamed of meeting. When he speaks of his flaws, I assure him that they all can be overcome and that his feelings are normal. When I tell him about any negatives about myself, he assures me that I can turn them into positives. Every song that I listen to is a happy song. I look at his pictures in awe of how someone so gorgeous inwardly and outwardly would be in the same awe of me. We both were invisible to opposite gender at one point, but we blossomed, and in turn our hearts were broken. We are both going through the dissolution of relationships and I prayed for a friend. And I wanted the friend to be a man. I wanted the man to have goals, and be resilient against any obstacles in his life. Oh, and I asked for beautiful eyes and a smile that would weaken me. That’s just a Domo thing. He knows things about me that I have not shared with friends that I have known for years. Every word I send and say, I fill them with kindness, because I know that he will smile. My impulse is to encourage him and to listen to those normal things that he thinks are strange. Everything that I have done since meeting him have only had positive outcomes. I am told to take it slow. Then I hear another word of wisdom. Or I find myself staring at his pictures several times a day. I do not want to rush. I want to continue causing happiness in someone’s life that causes happiness in mine. Our views of each other are reflections. He thinks I am angelic, and I wonder if he is heaven-sent. Whatever it is, I want it to stay. Whatever grows I pray it to be positive.
“Aren’t you something, an original, cause it doesn’t seem merely assembled,
And I can’t help but stare cause I see truth somewhere in your eyes.”
