For days you wonder.

If you knew how every silent night

And every storm outside

Echoed nothing but your name,


You wouldn’t have to ask me again.


If you heard the whistle of the wind

Change its tune

Every time you’re in my atmosphere,


You wouldn’t ever have to wonder why.


When you hold me close,

Do you feel the pulse of my heart

Race and stop

Do you feel you – the calm alarm to my every axon?

My faculties wearing thin

Every time it starts to sink in

That I’m falling for you, every day, ever more.

Walking on my Everest,

You’re the beginning

The peak

And everything in between.


Do you even realise,

How my eyes look for you in rooms you’re not even in?


I love you,

Because I do.


And I could never know how not to.


Canyons and seas.

Dear Brown-eyed boy,

When I look into those eyes,

I see seas, and oceans wide.


There are tides in your affairs,

Calm, and crashing

That come to fix these broken rhymes,

Your words, my most reverent psalm.


My walls crushing in those very same hands,

Those hands you used to build and craft –

Castles from my muddy sands.


Dear brown-eyed boy,

I wish you knew,

In the wading pools of shallow you believe to tread through,

I see infinity,

I see you.
