What I love about you
I love the way your forehead wrinkles when you are focussing hard on something.
I love the way you lose yourself in something when you are really interested in that thing.
I love the way you smile like an innocent child when you get something and is happy about that thing.
I love the way you walk around, lost in your own world.
I love how you are unperturbed by what everyone else thinks, how you value your freedom and go crazy when you feel it’s threatened.
I love your denials as much as it annoys me. I love the way you are gonna cringe if you ever read this.
I love how you say aww when you see something cute.
I love the way your lips arch and curve when you smile your fullest smile, which is to say, every time you smile. And I love that too; your smiles are full, not half baked.
I love the way you pout. I love the way you get offended.
I love the look on your face when you get surprised.
I love the way you nod your head like you are serious after saying something ridiculously not very funny for most of the listeners. And yeah, sometimes they are funny. But that’s rare;)
I love the way you repeat your clothes, maybe because I used to do that too.
I love the way you get obsessed with things.
I love the little rebel in you.
I love the high functioning anxious idiot.
I love the quick kisses and the horny look. The love bites and cuddles.
I love your love for physical intimacy.
I love the way you shield me from the mighty Sun trying to seduce me with his hotness.
I love the fact that you love cheese and cookies and crème and red velvet and chicken popcorns and subs.
I love how you rub your earlobes when you are studying.
I love a lot of little things about you and I can go on like this and I am not even drunk or high.
But since I feel too lazy to type let’s jump to the final point.
I love you.
And it’s very scary. For me.
Am scared of loving you anymore because it might crush down the last of my already fragile defenses. And vulnerability is my greatest fear. Despite that I love you.
I love you for all the things you are and everything you do. And am quite glad I do.
Honestly, I used to be someone who believed in absolutes and extremes. I’ll either be with someone if am perfectly sure he’s the one or I’d remain single for life. I was hoping for the latter. You made me want to take the chance and concentrate on the journey more than the destination. And am grateful for that.
I can’t guess what the future is going to be. Maybe you won’t be the one I kiss on top of Eiffel tower. Maybe we won’t have love locks. Maybe you won’t be the one I spend the rest of my life with.
Or maybe you will be.
But whatever it is, I know one thing for sure. It’s gonna be one hell of a journey and I can’t wait to experience it fully.
