A Hundred Tiny Reasons

fall in love

Do you ever observe someone

from afar

and fall in love with them

for a hundred tiny reasons?


It might be a look of concentration —

the way they flawlessly dance —

their uninhibited laughter —

or a gesture of kindness —


— all these small unconscious things

that make us human

and that make our souls

absolutely endearing to one another.


And then you wonder

if anyone’s falling in love

with you

from afar —


— and then you glance up

and catch their gaze on you —

and you know

they are …


… even if they don’t realize it.
