When it really boils down to it,
Changing a life only takes three words.
I’ve written paragraphs, essays,
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.
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.”
