Mirror souls

Warm summer night
Sitting on the balcony floor
Facing me closely
On the faded blue beach blanket
Two wine glasses
Two mezcal shots
One water pipe

Warm string lights
Illuminating the texture of your curly hair
Your eyes
So wide and open
Deep like the ocean
Sad like the saddest movie I’ve ever seen

Your eyes on my eyes
No blinking so far
Piercing through my soul
I feel seen for the first time
