I don’t need someone who will love me for my Beauty, I need Someone who will love me for my Scars

I don’t need someone who will fall in love with my smile. I need someone who can fall in love with my tears, and all the stories that come with them. I need someone who can understand the pain behind every tear that drops, someone who can understand the tears behind every smile I give them, and someone who will know how to handle both. I need someone who can take those tears as a sign of bravery and strength, and not as a sign of weakness. I need someone who can feel content in knowing that they’re the only ones allowed to see these tears drop.

I don’t need someone who will fall in love with my laughter. I need someone who can fall in love with my quietness. Someone who can fall in love with all the thoughts that keep haunting me when I’m alone at night, when the entire world has gone silent, when my room goes completely dark, and when my mind begins to wonder about all the things that are wrong with the world, all the things that are wrong with my life, and all the things that are wrong with me…I need someone who can find the answers to all my wandering thoughts, someone who can enjoy the calmness of the still night, and someone who can fall in love with the echoes of my silence.

I don’t need someone who will fall in love with my face. I need someone who can fall in love with my eyes. Someone who can see how deep they go, someone who can learn the secret language they speak, and someone who can hear all the things they are trying to say. I need someone who has the courage to walk right into them, someone who is ready to see the world through my eyes. I need someone who can see the things I gaze at, someone who can understand what makes me blink, and someone who knows the things that make me want to close my eyes. But what I truly need is for that someone to see exactly how I look at him and know how much love for him my eyes hold.

I don’t need someone who will fall in love with my lips. I need someone who can fall in love with my words. The words that I speak so gently when I feel fragile and the words that I blurt out openly when I feel angry. The words that I use as fillers in the times when I’m not sure what to say and the words that I use with such profoundness when I’m ready to pour my heart out; spill all my secrets, take them on a ride to the deepest corners of my mind and slowly hand over the keys to my heart to just that one special person. - Continue reading on next page
