the dresses flowed endlessly like water through a river,
curls bounced up and down,
and faces were perfected with more makeup than let on.
i didn’t think this night would end up how it did,
with myself falling more in love with you.
as i stared across the room my eyes landed on you,
sitting with others whom you don’t know quite yet, but you soon will.
you’re not how i though you would be,
but different is good.
i don’t know what it is about you,
your eyes, smile, or personality that captures me every time.
it’s something that makes me stumble over my words and lose track of my thoughts
it’s something that makes me want to know you better,
figure out all the great things about you;
it’s something that is just as special as you.
