pieces of you

it’s how you always take your time to choose your words
the way music controls you and frees you all at once
the stupid smile on your face when you ask me if I liked one of your jokes
how you are completely fine with being alone for hours, even at parties
how you place your faith in random people you barely know
the look in your eyes when, at times, you’re subtly looking for approval
your sarcasm
how you make the most inappropriate comments seem just quirky and innocent
how you don’t seem to need sleep
your stubborn preference for doing everything else instead of arguing to convince people
how you sometimes seem to come from nowhere and
have no past
no ties
no anchors.
