“Nobody’s perfect”, she said
Eyes sparkling like gems.
“But I guess I’m close.”
My heart leapt like a salmon
Further up the stream of love.
She picked away at the candle wax
Knowing that it was a ‘thing’ that annoyed me,
But also aware she could just laugh
And I would forgive anything.
My heart still sings to think of that face.
Another time and place.
I know. I KNOW.
