Dear You

Dear You,

The world seems a lot less cruel with you in it. Every time I look at you I see something reflected back in my eyes. I can’t place exactly what it is, but it brings new meaning to my life.

I’ve come to realize that I can’t ignore you, though I’ve desperately tried. I can’t get you out of my mind. I see you in everything I do. I see your face every time I close my eyes; those blue eyes sparkle beautifully in the sunlight.

I just can’t stand it. I can’t live without you, and you don’t even know it. You probably wouldn’t care, even if you did know. You are completely oblivious to the effect you have on every part of me. I don’t see how it’s possible, but you succeed in refusing to acknowledge my presence.

Although it hurts, I keep you in my heart, hoping that some day you will reciprocate my passion for you. Until then, though, I’m sure you will continue living your life as you always have. Do you even know I exist?
