Coffee when it is the perfect temperature, when you call just to tell me goodnight, a child’s laugh, eye contact with a stranger, orange feeling days, lazy days, productive days, full tummies, trying new foods, going new places, finally crawling into bed after a long day, getting to see you after a long week, speaking without saying a word, words between friends, words between strangers, making things at 4 am, knowing exactly what you’re thinking, getting pictures developed, surprises, good grades, friends, family, love.
Today I woke up in your bed under empty, cold sheets. I waited an hour for you to get home; I cleaned myself and sat next to the breeze coming in through your window. When the door opened, I felt my face squish into the biggest smile. In that instance, I felt something that I’ve never felt before. I can’t think of a single word to describe it; it was intoxicating, my body filled with a sentimental warmth. I kissed your face and we left hand in hand in silence. I think I am falling for you, I think I might have already fallen.
