i fell in love


i fell in love.

not with a classmate from school

or the boy a few streets down,


but with afternoons spent laughing with friends

as the warmth from golden rays pulled me in for a reassuring embrace.

i fell in love

with the hazy euphoria that comes

with laughing at a joke while trying not to fall asleep in class.

i fell in love

with the cheeky smile my friend sent me,

illuminated by the warm glow from a christmas tree,

as i delivered freshly baked chocolate chip cookies to her

after everyone had fallen asleep.

i fell in love

with the way my friend’s eyes lit up

after receiving my message

although she was just across the room.

i fell in love

with laughing

until shapes swam

and the world spun.

i fell in love

with the endless happiness

that can pour out of a human soul;

the glowing flow of golden light

streaming into a cavern full of wilted flowers

that had been deprived of nurturing and sustenance

for far too long.


i fell in love

with how hundreds of little bubbles

would rise up to the surface of soda

and burst.

i fell in love

with how velvety smooth grass

danced

under the brilliantly blue arch,

dotted with feathery clusters,

that is the sky.

i fell in love

with the smell of sweets

and the sounds of laughter and chatter

that are staples

for any jubilant celebration.


i fell in love

with waking up again and realizing,

“today is another chance.”

i fell in love

with a youtube comment made by a stranger

who told me

that i was wanted

and loved

and that they were proud of me.

i fell in love

with the way that some people would never give up on me.

i fell in love

with the way i felt a little more comfortable in my body

after i stopped weighing myself every day,

after i stopped counting every calorie and crumb.

i fell in love

with forgetting to compare myself to others.


and in the end,

i fell in love

with myself.

i may not be perfect

and i may never be perfect

but i’m beginning to accept myself

and that’s enough for me.


so remember

that you are loved

and wanted

and that out there

someone
is proud of you

and wants only the best for you.


and if i learned something

it’s that happy is not winning a battle,

but realizing that there isn’t one.
