In LoveMature

I think about you
like the rising tide
and setting sun.
I guess
that's to say
always.
And sitting here
telling you
I've been in love with you
since we sat
under the bridge
shouldn't be difficult.
It isn't.
I am in love with you.
I have said it
more than I can count
but I did not say it
when I meant to.
Staring into your eyes
and my throat closing up
It was hard
because I did not know
if you felt the same.
The passing months
aren't making it easier,
this is because
I am always nervous.
You make me nervous.
You've made me nervous
since the day we met.
Just by smiling,
you had me
falling all over myself.
I'm in love with you.
When your fingers close around mine,
and you hold me close.
but none of it really matters
not why
not when
not how.
I'm in love with you.
That's what matters.

The End
