The first time I fell in love,
I fell so hard it didn’t hurt.
The smiling numbness, and all-time high.
And I kept climbing, up and up and up into oblivion,
Blinded by the lights of now,
And the never ending loop of infinity.
Till three words changed my life forever
Three words she was to return with four,
But thought them best unsaid.
Four words that could save a life.
I love you too.
But my words hung there like phantom laundry,
That evaporated like cologne,
And left its scent in silence.
Three words that would scarcely graze my tongue again
I and love and you
