i have only met the stars by
seeing them shine through you

i have only met kindness in
the open smile you always wear

and i, i am too shy to say anything about
how i am in love with the colour of
the sun through your hair or how
you always bake cupcakes for
whomever’s birthday it is just so
you’re sure that they’re not left out, that
they get something, or how you once
gave your whole week of lunch money
to a kid who had his taken by a bully

and one day you and i were the last
left in the room and when you moved,
the sleeves of your sweater slid up and
you hurriedly pushed them back over your
palms and i want to tell you that the scars i saw
do not make me think you’re damaged goods
instead it gave me hope because i thought i
could never be a good person
with how broken i am but if you can do it
that means i can

i don’t mean to pressure you or
to make you uncomfortable because i know
it’s crazy that i feel this way, i know
just keep being as
gentle as you are, as considerate, as
funny.

one day i hope i work up the courage
to tell you that you changed everything.

"I don’t know you but you’re the most beautiful person ever.”
