the unexpected spark that lights your soul on fire ///
i don’t know your story just yet, but i know it’s one worth staying for. from the depth of your woeful brown eyes to the calluses of your laboring hands, you’ve hypnotized me. our first interaction - an impromptu adventure that led to a chance meeting - left a notable impression that made me yearn to see your smile again. ive always been a sucker for the flash of perfect pearly whites, but yours… yours is filled with such genuine joy and childish freedom that i can’t help but smile in return. in those rare moments, i see a natural release from the anxiety and anticipation of ‘living the dream.’ you’ve obviously worked hard to get to where you are today, but the weight of the future still lies heavy. it’s a burden that few carry willingly and a burden that once shouldered, can never fully be lifted. i know it all too well… the expectations; the hopes; the dreams; the heartache; the tunnel vision; the focus; the dedication; the self-doubt; the nightmares; the excitement; the unknown.
in twenty some odd years, i’ve never met someone as driven as myself. haaa.! arrogance? sure. but for the first time, it feels right. it feels like home.
