I've known

I've known

the way your eyes twist into stars

and I swear there is nothing

I'd rather know


I've known

that my favorite shape

happens to be your smile

and the way your lips curl

makes my chest feel less hollow


I cannot wait

until I can see your face up close to mine

illuminated by the vermilion

glow of the sun


My heart beats 

the same as yours


And I swear to God,

I will never let this go

because this is the best thing

I've known
