Mikala Mikrut: Poetry of the Day, Copyright 2018
So I wrote this poem for a guy friend who recently started a relationship with Sabrina, one of my best friends and this was my response when he was reading one of her books and said “I will read whatever she says”:
I HOPE YOU READ HER EYES
Well then I hope you read her eyes, and understand the meaning behind every slight difference in each glance. I hope you read her laugh and her imperfections and her tears. I hope you hold her so gently that her binding never weakens.
Highlight your favorite passages to refer back to when she feels worthless. Write all of your profound and witty comments in her margins, but please remember that you are not the author.
I hope you read between the lines of her stories. I hope you read her humor and her unworldly beauty and her divinity. I hope that you don’t neglect your own reality for her enchantment.
She is the best part of my life, and I hope you bring what she finally deserves in her next chapter.
