Like No One Else

I look forward to knowing each crinckle in your nose,
I look forward to all the noises you make when you sleep,
To the particular way you like your breakfast in the morning,
I look forward to the way you stamp your feet when you get in from outside,
I want to know you like no one else,

I look forward to the way your eyes get intense when you’re about to tell me something romantic,
Or the way you melt like butter when I stroke your face,
I look forward to knowing the corners of your heart,
Your fears, your dreams and your wildest passions,
I want to know you like no one else,

I look forward to you leaving cupboards open,
And avoiding dirty dishes,
I look forward to you carrying my bags and holding the door open for me,
I want to know you like no one else,

I look forward to you always holding my hand and giving me kisses out of the blue,
I look forward to the sound of your snoring,
I want to know you like no one else,

I look forward to reaching out and knowing you’ll be next to me,
To looking in your eyes and instantly feeling what you feel,
I look forward to you being the greatest love I have ever known,
To our connection deepening,
I want you to say that no one knows you like I do,

I look forward to you putting your utmost trust in me,
In our lives blending together,
I want to know you like no one else,

I look forward to buying you things,
Making gestures to show you just how loved you make me feel,
I want to know you like no one else,

I want to know you on your bad days,
The days when you want no one around,
I want to be your touchstone,
The reason you smile and feel hopeful again,
I want to know you like no one else,

I want to be the reason you no longer feel any pain,
I look forward to us building our lives together,
I look forward to knowing every freckle on your skin,
Every curl of your hair,
I want to know you like no one else,

  1. As I read this, I thought to myself, I can’t remember the last time I read a poem. It actually brought me back to a point in my life where I was kinda trying to write poetry a little, I wasn’t very good. 😂 Or at least I needed more practice. Anyway, I loved this poem. I’ve been talking about love a lot more lately. Wanting to manifest my partner to be, and this was a great read to what I have been feeling. 💙

    1. OMG you are far too kind!!! I don’t think I’m very good either, but I just write what I feel and then press publish- lol. Wishing you a fruition of your manifestation!!!
