Feeling Beautiful

I love you.

I love the way you smell like the pinkest of bubblegums when I bury my face into the curve of your neck.

I love the wrinkle that forms between your eyes when you're thinking too hard.

I love how your mouth scrunches up on one side when you're unsure of something.

I love the way you tap your feet to unsteady rhythms in band class.

I love your chestnut waves of hair peeking out from the top of your music stand.

I love how when you look at me, breath vanishes from my lungs and my heart spits out bass-like thuds.

I love how when you look at me, I quickly glance away, then look back a split-second later and I can't stop the corners of my mouth from turning up if your eyes meet mine again.

I love how special you are.

I love how you make me feel worth something.

I love how you make me believe there's something worth fighting for.

I love how you make me feel beautiful.

Wow, the imagery in this was fantastic. Not to mention, it sounds liek you're in band, and so am I, which makes this entire scene completely relatable becuase I have experienced this. I love this. Love it!
