  (ifwerebeingcliche)
     like   No other 
You’ve caught my attention since

      before 

Your face
   striking 
                            also soft
And your mind
exploding with 
 
joy
         and perfect words and    perfect

     when you speak 
   your  voice       a  song
and when  you laugh 
                        


  ‘M sorry                   
                        wait a

No reception here
