Your Dark Is Beautiful Too

“But darling, you forgot
about one thing:
I love your dark, too.”

When I said I loved everything about you — your mannerisms, your speech, the way that beautiful mind worked — I also meant that I loved all facets of you. All the colors you radiated from within. The blazing reds of your unbridled passion. The blues of your light-hearted laugh. The purples of your mid-afternoon nap. And every color in between. Because you are the light of my life. But darling, you forgot about one thing: I love your dark, too. How else could the night give way to such an expanse of stars and moonlight?

You are every color
of my soul.

  1. It’s easy to say that you love a person but truly meaning it is another story. A person has different hues and not all of it is beautiful. Amazing way of putting it into perspective

  2. You’ve captured this facet beautifully Sarah, it makes reading it feel like the painting of a synathesiac response to the stimulus of the person who is loved. Vivid and tender. ~ P ~
