Are the light that dances in your eyes.
I see it
When you think I'm not watching.
Are big dreams and starry nights,
And that moment before you've made a decision when the world itself is yours.
You told me
That if you had sixty minutes to finish a test you would use every second of it
And I know you feel the same way about life because
You like roller coasters -
Wind-swept screams and flying far ahead of your heart and your stomach;
I know the feeling.
It's the same feeling that I get when your name buzzes into a text message,
Lights up my phone and my life.
For a moment, I am caught between all of the words we choose not to say and you.
Are the reason I can't tell dreams from reality
Ever since you said the words "I like you."
You say there is no such thing as fate
But I think it is not so much the stars
That create us but we who define the stars
And I know that any wish I make will take over four years
To reach Proxima Centauri
But wishes travel faster than light,
I know that I've been wishing for you since before the light in your eyes hit mine.
Sometimes things don't stick
Feelings fleet and bump and crash.
Have hurt people
People not unlike you or me
Stare at the spot where we once were and wonder.
So when they ask what I need more than anything
Are that soft smile that tickles my heart
Those rough hands and deep conversation
Were captured in that moment when you looked at me
And asked if I felt it, too.
All I need is...
