If Eyes could speak

Nonso 20150914_201008


You think I don’t know, but I see it every day.

I see right through you and there is no denying

You can lie to everyone and maybe yourself but not me

I know how much your heart flutters when he looks at you

I know how much your mind skips when he calls your name

I see how sweetly you smile when the thoughts of him crosses your mind

I know how much you find comfort when he holds you, wishing he doesn’t let go

I know how much you look forward to tomorrow just so you could “steal” some moments with him

I know how painful the feeling that comes with time running out so fast when you are with him

Forever doesn’t seem like enough does it?

I also know how much you don’t want him to know you feel the way you do

And why so?

I know you like him, so stop pretending.

I know of the secret notebook where you’d rather write the things you ought to say

Because for you it feels safer that way.

I know how much you pray that someday it’ll go beyond the hidings and musings of your heart.

I know how much in your imperfection, you want this to be perfect.

I know these and much more,

Of a girl in a corner of the street somewhere who prays the boy with the eyes beautiful as the sky

With a much more beautiful soul within

Would find his way to her and never let go

So I decided to tell her story

Maybe someday her dreams will come true

And she’ll finally have the courage to tell her story of how though underserving she was

She found love that lasted a life time.

Till then, she waits happily and wants you to enjoy this piece and hopes you find what makes you happy.
