When it really boils down to it,

Changing a life only takes three words.

I’ve written paragraphs, essays,

And, afterwards,

They still walk away.

Until one day,

I met a girl who caught my voice

And silenced me.


It was very very frightening

To feel my heart race heightening

Or that my throat was tightening

From such bolt of lightning.


And the pause.


The little silence out in the air

As the wind blew through her hair.

The little pitter-patter of the rain,

Breaking against the concrete.


She’d smile,

And look away,

While I choked up

The nerve to say…


I was scared.

I had waited too long,

Like a wrong noted played

At the end of a song.


Her eyes looked down

And she hinted at frown

And I felt like a clown

At a formal dinner.



All the paragraphs; the essays;

All the words I knew

Paled in comparison

To her saying

“I love you.”
