I Fell In Love With You Slowly, And Then All At Once

Nishe

When you kissed me you became,
more than just a person.

When you kissed me you became,
the echo of my words,
the tangle in my voice.

You became,
every colour in the sky
on a ripe summer night,
the taste of apricots on my lips.

Suddenly,
without me noticing
you became a living,
breathing,
part of my world.

Suddenly,
without me noticing,
you became a living,
breathing,
part of my soul.TC mark

* This title was inspired by a quote from John Greene

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
