Now This Is Love by Carissa Cicchini

I never imagined waking up happy on a foggy Monday morning until you

came along.pasture-349725_640

It’s just the sky seems really beautiful right now, and

I know that I am often as gloomy as the fog may seem,

but there are moments like these where the sky seems

really f***ing beautiful because

it reminds me of your smile.

I don’t know how else to explain the thoughts that are in the mind behind

these stormy eyes,

but I think your presence is what happiness feels like,

and I think your presence is what happiness tastes like,

and, oh God,

it is perfect.

My eyes seem to hold a lot of truth in them,

and I am trying to let the love seep through the broken bones

in my body.

I want you to know I crave you.

I want you to know I adore you.

I guess I’m just trying to tell you that there are sunsets and sunrises

on the shores of your eyes, and

I could spend forever standing by the water, drowning

in everything you are.
