You held everything together when it seemed everything was crumbling down. If it's any consultation I'll be the first to admit. I miss you with everything I have in me. It's not that beautiful face or the body that accompanies it. It's those huge eyes that I could stare into forever. With all the time we've spent with each other. As the time we spend far from each other. I miss the goofy big haired girl that always made me laugh. The wit to fall in love with someone like me. The things I reveal in braille. You took every part of me and wore me with your look. Your fashionista sensibility. You make the simplest of anything that much better. I grew accustom to those moments. The moments I never sought in anyone else. I could never look at anyone the way I looked at you. Eccentric and fun. A model that rips the runway of my eye. A pretty face that made every idea that much brighter. It was always the sincerity of how you looked at everything. From your hair. Your smile. I miss that. The precious feeling when I'd hold you in my arms. The need to protect something as precious as you. Life makes the simplest of anything complicated. I sought to protect and cherish you with everything I have. My heart in love with everything you are. You irk me, you irritate me. You press my every right button. Most of all I could never look at another woman the way that I've looked at you. The reasons I miss you, that I love you so. You changed my perspective of what love is. I irritate you for the beauty found in those moments. To miss a flight and spend just a second more. Forgetting the public eye, to fade off. The things we keep between you and I. Your sense of humor. Your tongue against the side of my neck. We've shared pieces of ourselves that I know deep down we wish we could take back. But all the money in the world couldn't make any other moment that more important. Pride aside, I left the best part of me with you. If I could do it all again I wouldn't change a thing. You inspire me without solemn apology. Because of you I am different. The quality of how special you are. Deep down I crumbled. You inspired me to find the beauty in the rubble

Inspired by the woman who took every part of you and wore you with a look. Incredulous writing, KeWayne. Unbelievably good!
