I used to love a boy who had stars in his eyes and galaxies on his fingertips, who had a smile that could melt the earth and eyes so blue they could freeze the sun. He was strong enough to carry the whole weight of the world on his shoulders. In my eyes he was always dancing on clouds, his laugh echoing through the whole universe.
But he was just a boy. And I used to love him, but his stars had someone else written for him. So I don’t anymore. Or at least I try not to.
