Sitting on the coffee shop across me,
She stared at her phone with blush cheeks.
She looked at me through the corner of her eyes
And instantly caught my admiring gaze.
"You look pretty" I smiled as she blushed again.
"You're beautiful " she winked at me with a mischievous grin.
She is pretty, beautiful, and smart,
How can you not end up giving her your heart?
She is the sunshine while I'm the pale moon
Giving all her radiance to rewrite my social doom.
She was the flames while I was her coal
I kept her ablaze and she filled me whole
Her golden sleek straight braids fell till her waist
It complimented my deadlock curls without haste.
I tucked her hair behind her ear "About this are you sure?"
" I had never fallen in love so deep before. Only if I knew earlier my best friend was the one, whom I was meant for. "
I did see resolutions in her eyes,
Resolutions that screamed she would shield me and fight.
Resolutions that could chase away my fears,
Resolutions with which she would hold me her dear.
"I accept you for you, I accept us as a whole
I'm ready for the leap of faith, are you ready for my soul? "
I smiled at her, holding back her hand, my fingers placed on hers
She slipped in the ring, our shaped symbol of love.
Our love was pure, humane, considerate, it was beyond measures
It was never confined to social stigmas and contrary genders
We wished together for a forever and a day more,
A forever where acceptance, respect, and love overshadowed distaste and fear.
