Seven Words

via Pinterest

it was two in the morning
you called me and said
you needed to tell me something

you’d been trying to sleep
but couldn’t because
there were three words
itching to come out of your lips

my heart stopped
my breath caught

until you whispered
‘i love you’

you raised your voice
‘i fucking love you’
‘those were seven words
but i don’t care’

(i didn’t care either
because i could tell
you really meant them)

a gush of air blissed my lungs
and i found myself on your lap
kissing your lips with a smile
and giggles in my throat

– (have you an idea of how long i’ve been waiting for these three words from you?)
