They still smile even when he’s not. They speak in kindness and fill me with hope. They remind me of the man I loved.

They belong to another man. Not the one who stands before me. They belong to the boy who stole my heart. They were the only truth in the sea of lies.

His strength lives in those eyes. His love and compassion dance in the reflections. They are the only trap that can still catch my breath.

I miss you. I miss the man I thought you would become.
