A smile surfaces on my face, turning my lips up to my eyes that shine for him, for his love. I think about all the romantic things he has said, how each one made me feel. They made me feel special, beautiful, sexy, loved. This is the fuel behind the smile.

A tear rolls down my face, down towards my heart that breaks when I think about the hard times. I think about the arguments, the cruel words, from both of us, all brought about by fear, concern, love. Our hearts have felt much pain in the past. This is the fuel behind the tear.

A sigh escapes my lungs. I think about how his touch arouses me, makes my heart feel warm and full, how his kisses take me away from my stresses. How his eyes look deep into mine, searching my soul. He sees me completely and loves me still. This is the fuel behind the sigh.

This fuel is love. Not just any love, an enduring love, a patient love, and understanding love. This fuel has kept our hearts burning for each other through the stillness of the night and through the winds of the violent storms. It is a very flammable fuel. It does not let the fire go out, it keeps it burning through joy and pain.

For if the fuel allowed the fire to burn out, then it wasn’t really love to begin with.

Nicely visualized
The face and what we do with it is so telling. A nice piece that beautifully confesses how much we say even when we're not using words.
