When You Fall In Love With A Poet
Author: Indira Reddy/Medium
Fall for a poet and she will spend hours thinking about the elbow that grazes her as you stroll hand in hand.
She will spend eons trying to capture in words, the look on your face as her hands trail down your body.
She will write pages on your hair; the way it drops right after you run. The perfect tousled look in the early sun.
She will notice the half-smile that threatens to break out during rom-coms. Despite a steady disavowal of such fare.
She will watch those dark curling lashes lying like a soft wave on smooth skin. Geometric perfection on imperfect human.
She will observe the way your body moves, your face emotes, your hands speak, your voice feels and your touch sings. And write a poem or a hundred, on you.
So, be prepared to see yourself.
When you fall in love with a poet.
I absolutely loved this at first read. The editor in me would change a few things lol, but the poet in me releases the critic. Well done, Indira. ❤️
