Kept for you

I kept my secret smile for you today.

I almost gave it to a man who was trying to steal my heart, but I pulled it back just in time. Smooth phrases and witty words, even with my guard down, I didn’t give it away.

You see, my secret smile holds all the things I only want to say to you,
“I like you exactly as you are.”
“We’d be so good together.”
And, “Do you want to take me home?”

It’s the smile I have when I wake up after a dream about you. The one that rolls across my lips when I think of your name.

When I see you again, I’ll be sure to wear it, hoping you’ll understand the messages behind it. I’ve been curating it over time, preserving it and reserving it; waiting for the right time.

Keeping it, just for you.
